I have 3 albino corys in my 80 gal, they are fine; I have a very fine gravel
that is about 1-2 mm as the surface, with soil underneath. They like
rummaging around in it; I have heard that with larger or sharp substrates,
their whiskers can get abraded etc. Anyway, mine like to hang out under a
big ozelot I have, where the lileaopsis is not very thick, and in places
non-existent, but also forage happily in heavily planted parts of the tank,
shuffling through the leaves at ground level - in fact, they uproot stem
cuttings when first planted sometimes.
Mine don't hide; maybe the angels are harrassing them? I have congo tetras,
cardinals and neons, and blue rams, plus a few oto cats.
Vancouver - still wet and cold!
