So corydoras and loaches need sand but what about the bristlenose plecos?

I have a new tank and 2 adult bristlenose plecos waiting to go in it but I'm not sure what substrate I can use for them. Will they thrive with any kind? sand, gravel, eco complete, Redsea flora base and will adding laterite to the substrate affect them?

I'm happy to do my own research but I'm not sure if I should avoid anything?

Bristlenose can basically handle any substrate, You do want to make sure you have some wood in there and caves for them to hide in.

Awesome! Yes they have wood and caves I just wanted to make sure their was nothing I had to avoid (in substrate) since I'm setting up a new tank for them.

Thank you for your reply
