Too coarse. I'd replace it with sand if I were you.

In their natural habitat the substrate is sand for almost all cory species, at least the ones I have studied. But they will be OK in your tank, as the substrate is not sharp edged rock but pebbles. I have small-medium grain gravel in my tanks and they seem to be doing fine. As an earlier post said, don't overfeed as the food will get down within the substrate. And maintain a regular partial water change schedule (weekly is good) and vacuum the substrate each time.

You need some plants though, for the cories and the angelfish. And a piece or two of bogwood lying down so the corys feel more secure. They do not like empty tanks. You can get some good ideas by checking the photos of the members' tanks that are in the "Freshwater Fish Pictures and Videos" part of this forum.

I have lots of fake plants in there. That pic was of day one set-up. I'm still moving things around in there. Adding rocks, taking them out. I am trying to hold off adding the angels until I am stitisfied with the decor. Water conditions look good, but I am still running two big filters and I know the angels don't like a lot of current. I will probably stick with the Emperor 400 on one side a a Aquaclear 150 gpm on the other.
