Flourite & Bottom Feeders
Which bottom feeding fish (corys, plecos) can stand the roughness of flourite?
Fluorite as substrate should not be used with bottom dwellers. Most bottom dwellers naturally have softer underbellies, anything other than the smoothest gravel or sand could lead to infections or wounds on the underside.
Tanks: 40 gal FW setup, 10 gal Reef tank.

I have 3-4 tanks with flourite as a substrate and have a ton of cories in each of those tanks. I also have farowellas, dwarf bagrids, an eel cat, sunset cats, dwarf synodontis', and other non-armored catfish in these tanks and have not had the first injury due to "scapes" on these fish from the substrate.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
