Hi,

Has anyone kept corydoras species in tanks with sharp stones, like seiryu or dragon stone? Is it ok to kepp them in tanks with these types of stone in or will it do damage to their mouths/barbels?

Cheers.

I had 20 Sterbai with seriyu stone, and no issues.

I'm always more concerned with slate which is razor sharp with my zebra plecs, and they were never sliced. :D

For fish like Corys it's the substrate that is the main problem. Because of their feeding habits they aggressively shove their mouths into the substrate 'sifting' for food.

However I think normal stone ad rock is OK as long as it isn't glass. I never had problems with pitbull plecs and slate so I echo what TDI says r.e. that.
