I'm still trying to decide what to add to cover the bottom of my new 100g tank. I already have plain black aquarium gravel from two 30g tanks. I have live plants, and lots of cories. I'd love to make it a mixture of black aquarium gravel and Eco-Complete, but I'm concerned that the scratchiness of the Eco-Complete will harm my cories. Is there anyone out there with an ESTABLISHED tank with E.C. and cories who can reassure me?

About a week ago I added some Eco-Complete to my aquarium which has at least 7 pygmy corys and I have not seen any adverse affects, at least not yet. I don't have the whole surface covered with Eco-Complete, and actually tried to get it below/mixed in the other gravel as much as I could. I can't really say if it would hurt the corys if it is the only substrate you use, but if you put Eco-complete on the bottom then put a layer of normal gravel on top it would probably be ok.

I have Eco-Complete with my cories. I just added it though so we will see how it tuns out.

I have Eco with Aspidoras, which are similar enough. They're fine.
