    Hi gents.

    Just a quick need for some advice.
    Wanting to move some sterbai cories into a aqua soil tank with glosso and many other plants.

    Can you for see any problems like them ruining the soil to dust or destroying my carpet?

    Soz for typos. On phone

    Hi Dave
    My corys loved the Aquasoil.
    They never really turned it into dust, but if the carpet is nice and thick AND they manage to get underneath, the will love playing there all day. My starbai spawned under my carpet the first time, great place to raise fry...

    @jakkalsbothma - hahahaha, those cories hey - best thing since sliced bread IMHO!!!!!
    Thanks for the input man, tank is still young, but the glosso has lfinally learned to grow sideways and with some runner so not thick yet.

    But yeah, sounds like it's worth trying them out in the tank then.

    Wait until the carpet plants have covered the substrate before adding corydoras!
