Every time, without fail, that I feed the Baldwins (my 4 melinis) they always push all the food into one corner. There will be one scarfing at all the food, and 3 others desperately trying to get to it. What the heck!? I love these guys, but I'm thinking they're not the brightest crayons in the box. Or maybe one of them is a pig and diabolically clever.

Does this happen to you guys? Got any tips for feeding?

yep, but generally speaking my cories share. Mine push it in the corner to stop the pellets from rolling around.I spread out my pellets during feeding time.

I tried that once, but they all went after just one of the pellets at a time. lol. It doesn't help that my tank is super heavily planted. Maybe I'll try spreading them out a bit closer together.

One of my melinis finally learned (the hard way) to stop messing with my assassin snail! They treat the poor snail like he's a soccer ball, kicking him around with their barbels. Well, one of the Baldwins started nosing the Emperor (my assassin snail) and he decided he'd had enough. He shot out that appendage thingy that he uses to eat snails with and hit the Baldwin with it. The Baldwin reared up and did that stunned/freeze thing corys do when freaked out. I'm wondering if the Emperor actually stung him- I'm not sure exactly how thy kill their prey.

We'll see if the Baldwins learn their lesson! What goofballs!

I have two peppered cory cats. I have very hard basic water due to limestone deposits. The water up here really is just supper for snails, calcium gets everywhere.

But any way, my little guys are doing great. I don't see a problem with them thriving in that water. They are mostly from brazil, I don't know what there water is like down there. But something tells me corry cats are just as hearty as our betta friends.

I am sitting on the fence about getting two emeralds or two panda's there so cute, and they play really nicely with my upsidedown catfish.

Algae problems are usually helped with live plants. if there are plants growing healthy, they should out compete the algae for nutrients.

i find i have worse algae issues when my cycle has been screwes up for some reason.

In other news, my cories are all going strong! I got a video of them eating with Hoover my bristlenose pleco. i will get a link!

I had a tragedy in the tank today. I finally sat down at my PC desk and notice one of the BN is eating something white in the corner of the tank. I looked to see what the heck it was eatting and I was in horror to see it was feasting on Salt's carcass. I have no idea how he died when he was in perfect condition this morning swimming around with this mate. I felt soo bad for Pepper now her mate is gone u-u I don't know when I can get more cories to make a happy shoal for her. They were such a cute pair.

Update: The cories are doing great! Yesterday while cleaning my tank though, i poured the clean water in too fast and jacked up one of my little albino's sense of direction and swim bladder :( I put him in a cup and then he righted himself-talk about a mini heart attack! These little guys are so hardy, love them to bits!
