..Does anyone know if pool filter sand will be okay for corydoras?
I just bought some filter sand from my lfs. I felt it and though it is not fine like typical aquarium salt, it still feels smooth and soft. The sand "granules" or whatever they are called lol are just a bit bigger. I have 7 albino cories that will be using it, and I think they will be just fine.
I am really not sure about the cycle though.
