Do you feed 1 per cory, then? How fast does it take for them to finish eating? I think I'm definitely overfeeding mine.

No I feed 2 every night and I have 4. And It takes them about 10-20 minutes I guess. The pellet is usually disolved by then.

Yeah, I'm definitely overfeeding. I'm guessing the sinking wafers are just too big. I feed 3 wafers for 4 cats and it still takes them all night. But my guys are only an inch long.

I used to feed 2 pellets for 5-6 corys. Remember the golden rule: a hungry fish is a happy fish! I used to feed Hikari, the ones that had a picture of a cory on the front. Not sure of the name.

Plus, unlike bettas, corys have no problem sharing their food. They are just such lovely, friendly creatures!

My coreys are only about in inch, and they stand up to my girls. I cant count the number of times one of them has shot up from the bottom to gut check one of my girlys...

Betta-less at the moment :(

That's good to know, it makes me feel better putting them in with mine.

I know, I'm loving my little guys. They're so funny scuttling around and I love seeing the little "finprints" they leave in the sand.

It's true, though, they really do leave finprints! I have the same sand in my sorority and it's perfectly smooth but in the cory tank, it's all covered in little dents the shape of their pectorals. Well, tomorrow I'm putting them in the sorority so we'll see how it goes.
