Arowan, I tried feeding them after I turned the tank lights off but my room lights were still on; I have mini Japanese paper lantern lights hung up around my room that are always on so there's always some dim light in my room. (long story, too lazy to turn them off)

fishman, yup. It takes my girls about five minutes collectively to get fed (since they keep trying to jump out of the tank). The wafers aren't even soft enough for the cories to start eating by then; mine wait a good hour or more for the wafers to dissolve before they even go near them to eat.

I wouldn't have taken them out so soon. I truly think your cories would have managed just fine. You could also beef up their diets with veggies (prepared properly of course). I don't think the bettas would be as interested in cucumbers and the like. :)

Maybe I'll take a video of my guys feeding. It's been over 6 months and the cories aren't dead yet, despite the competition.

Yeah, I know, I think I overreacted when I took them out but it was 1 in the morning and I was getting sleepy. And I'm prone to overreacting. Would have saved me a lot of trouble if I'd just sat back and calmed down. I'll give my girls a week to go back down in size (they've shrunk a bit but they're still pretty fat) and then possibly try again. Maybe. After seeing my girls, my main concern shifted from "are the cories going to be able to eat" to "how do I keep my girls from eating till they explode."

At least now you can move your cories to your new 10g.
