Just a heads up: corys (great fish) have very delicate & sensitive barbels. Not sure how large/sharp your gravel is? As far as "starter" fish...are these fish you'll be happy keeping once your tank is cycled? If not, you may want to consider fishless cycling. Glad you joined us
well the cherry barbs i wanna keep. they are pretty hardy from what ive been told at the fish store and online. and they like temps at what a rts would need.
the reason i wasnt definite of corys is because i have a regular gravel, not big but i doubt its a soft enough substrate. but plecos get really large and i dont know if ill want that. any algee eating type fish that arent ugly to look at that i could get?
