Cory's would actually prefer sand since it's closer to what they would be around in the wild. When they're feeding on the sand bed you can actually see the sand pass through their gills. :D Pretty awesome if you ask me.
And with sand, most debris tend to stay on the surface rather than slipping through the cracks like with gravel.
