What do you feed your Cory?

I have 6 Axelrod Cory and will be getting 5 Albino Cory for my other 10 gallon when it finishes it cycle. Right now I am feeding them a homemade flake by my LFS. It is made up of a 50/50 plant/animal flake. It's 43% protein fat 8% and moisture is 9%. My Cory seem to eat it fine, but a few times I'll see them pass the food through their gills. I'm thinking they may prefer something else. So is there any recommended foods for these guys.

Nutrafin Sinking pellets. They also eat any fish food that falls down. My albino has learned to catch it before it hits the ground.
