I am currently cycling my 55 gal tank and am trying to plan out what kind of bottom feeders I want to get once the cycle is complete. I would really like to get some Cories but I want to make sure they would be a good fit. I have a lot of decorations on the bottom of my tank; a sunken ship with a cave like hole in the hull, pottery caves, some rocks that I bought at my lfs stacked to form cliffs and valleys, etc. I have not seen Cories in such a varied bottom environment. What I was wondering is will they crawl on top of all these decorations, scavange and be happy or do they prefer a more flat bottom? If Cories would not be a good fit, what are some other choices given my tank configuration. My current fish really like the varied bottom and so do I. I just want the newest members of my fish family to like it as well as the current members.
