Yeah, Bettafish15, I did too, but you know how long it takes those cories to eat!! and in the meantime, my guy has devoured his and is bumping with them to get theirs too... I had thought about separating him with like a breeder net in the tank or something to that effect, just to give the cories a chance without having to bump him to get it, but in the end I just threw in an extra one or two pellets as I had too much going on to really find a system that worked for all of them. I read a suggestion in the forum I think, about making a decoration of some sort that the betta would not fit into, but the cats would, so that you can put the food inside and they can eat undisturbed... Something to think about..

That's what I did, I bought a fake plant from the dollar store and used the leaves to make a little "bush" with silicone. The cory can get under, but due to the bigger fins on my betta, he can't. I put the bush on the opposite side of the tank of where I feed my betta, about an inch from the wall, and when I feed the betta I drop a sinking wafer under the plant. Works like a charm!

That's not a bad idea. What I do is feed Flare first, and while he's chasing his floaty pellets, I drop the sinking ones. It doesn't always work though.
