    can you recommend a friendly helper to keep my gravel bottom clean and someone who will not eat the decorative plants and not harass the guppies.
    I used to have some cories but once those were gone with old age (very old), haven't had the chance to pick a new helper.

    This might seem like a Cop Out reply "Why Change"? stick with what you know and it works.

    Keithgh I guess you're right. would Cories bother the smaller sized plants though? if I will try to plant some ground cover?

    Not as long as they have a good root system.

    Leave a few bare patches for the Cories they will find them very quickly.
