Cory Catfish
 
I plan on getting 6 albino cories and my quiestion is I also plan on getting a Pygmy chain sword plant and this plant will carpet the tank. Is this ok for the cories ? Will they still be able to manuver around the gravel and search for food through the carpeted tank?

The plant will be NO problem for the cories, infact they'll probably LOVE IT!! :)

Agree. But, I would keep some open space on the substrate, somewhere along the front. I try to do this in any tank that has corys or loaches. I add the sinking foods in the open areas, and the fish get used to it and can enjoy their meals together.:-)

Oh, forgot to say that, thanks Bryon.
