    The original Eco-Complete of circa eight years ago was very, very sandy. The recent formulae is nothing like the original, as now days its quite corse.
    Cool thanks. I didn't know it had changed so much. That was the missing info.
    I think it should be part of the article though because I definitely wouldn't want anyone putting cories over the current eco-complete. At least the one I have is definitely very coarse and very sharp. Even CaribSea marks it as not burrower friendly.

    Great info dave, thanks. :) Could you maybe put an addendum here and go into the issues with the Brochisgenus and how it fits into the picture. I know it is a hotly contested area among ichthyologists right now and the taxonomy is constantly changing.

    Thanks GB. I'll talk with Ian as the prevailing though is the Brochis Genus will be dissolved and the species will now be in the Corydoras Genus. But, will check with him and see anything is written in stone, yet.

    Sounds great. Thanks Dave. THe poor species of that genus have flopped back and forth, they're having a regular old Identity crisis.

    It's that 'clade' stuff again. I know science wants life forms in proper order based on like characteristics and genetic markers, but it's a pain in the rear when you write about fish for a living, and you have a sinking feeling that the scientific names will have changed yet again by the time the book is published.

    Now if they try to move Scleromystax into the Corydoras Genus . . . .

    Thankfully, the fish don't care what their Genus and Species is.
