|Eco complete and tahitian moon sand?|
We are about to set up a 55 gallon aquarium. I've used eccomplete with great success in a 37 gallon aquarium. I wondered if anyone knew if I could used ecocomplete with Tahitian moon sand over the top so my corys would have some good places to dig. The problem as I see it is that the sand would go to the bottom over time since it is finer and the ecocomplete would be on top anyway. Is ecocomplete safe for corys? In the 37 galon tank I had before, the corys were fine, but someone said it would be too sharp for corys. Any suggestions are welcomed. Thanks in advance.

You are right that the sand will mix with the ecocomplete over time, faster considering the corys would be digging around in it. I tried doing a mixed sand and gravel mix in one of my tanks, didn't succeed at all and actually did some pretty bad damage to the impeller of the filter (even with the intake covered with mesh). I've never used Tahitian moon, I was using playsand in the tank, so if the grains are larger it may not cause as much damage.
