I personally have the same gravel you have mixed of the bigger with smaller ....and i love it. Not sure may be it different because i do only 100% water changes though. But i though it also easier to siphon the gravel like that?

I dont say throw them in the hardest environment. I am just saying that fine gravel is not going to be so much of an issue. Unless gravel for someone means rocks that is.
No it doesn't need to take countless generations for "such effects". And even if it did fish produce at a steady rate that it would happen in a short amount of time.

Cories are crazy like that and sometimes have the tendency to headbutt things. Have you noticed them swimming to the surface to breath air?

I don't think you're overstocked at all.

What type of filtration system are you using? I know 40G don't come with starter kits.
hopefully this link works. BTW, despite having that betta hammock, Baloo normally sleeps on the gravel towards the back left side. This morning, I found him sleeping on top of that blue plastic plant. It was pretty cool to see him wedge himself in there.
