Is this gravel cory safe??
I really want to get some corys for my 100L freshwater tank, but I have read how sharper gravels are bad for their whiskers and they like softer substrates, is my gravel pictured safe for corys and their barbels?? I would change to sand but I am half way through cycling and would really rather not go through such a big job if possible.

TBH i have no experience with cories, but that gravel doesnt have sharp edges, it normal aquarium gravel. i dont think you will have any problem. the sharper gravels are the natural ones, seachem flourite is one of them.... sharp as heck lol...KING OF THE GOLD BARBS RAWR!!!!
I wonder if i plant one of my tiger barbs would the demon seed grow to a full tree?
gotta love them bunnies!

You will be much happier with the cories if you switch to a smooth grained sand. That way you will get to see their natural behavior.
