I finally took out all the gravel and added sand--something I should have done long ago! I really like the look of it and of course the cories were quite happy. They immediately started rooting around and leaving their little barbel prints all over the bottom. I redecorated it with some new plants and rocks as well. So now I have 6 aeneus and 5 male guppies in this 20 gal tank.

Yes you will notice that they will be a lot happier in a soft substrate. Like your aeneus female in pic.4...looks nice and healthy. The gravel certainly didn't do any harm to your Cory's as the barbels are in good condition.

Nice start, as you know the line will soften as the tank ages.
