How Much Do Julii Catfish Eat?

My mom has a 30 gallon tank & we just bought 2 julli's. We will be getting up to 6 altogether, but for now we have the 2 to begin with. We put in a algae wafer yesterday & have noticed they nibble at it but it will be there for a while. Should we also add some flake food each day? Do they not overeat? It seems if they were overeaters they would eat the wafer continuously, but they like I said they've been nibble liesurely for the past 24 hours & there's still a lot of wafer left. If the wafer is still there a few days from now, should i put in a fresh wafer or just leave the current one in?

Any help on how to feed them & how much would be very helpful. Thanks

Algae wafers aren't enough for them. They probably won't eat the flakes either. You'll want to find a good quality sinking pellet that isn't just algae, since they need protein too. I have a very shy group of cories (compared to others I've seen) and mine only start eating after lights out, so you might want to try that.

taking a break from fish-keeping.
3 lovely male betta still keep me company.
