not they don't they just can't have any sharp objects round pea gravel is fine stop scaring the lad people do you not think corries encounter rocks in the wild? check out my corries barbs on my tanks there's deff all gravel with a couple flat plants and smooth rocks they just need resting places not a child proofed tank

As far as sand being an absolute necessity when keeping cories, probably not, as long as there are no sharp edges on any of your substrate. One of the benefits of sand is being able to watch them sift through the sand, spitting it our their gills. There's a difference between necessity versus preference. If we were to set up a tank with gravel on one side, and sand on the other, which side of the tank would the cories hang out??

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

I honestly doubt they will be able to make a decision based solely on the substrate.

However as mentioned, I would also definitely suggest an AC30 as far as the filtration.
I'm thinking about setting up something similar, but rather then cories I will be doing a clown loach growout school.
