If anyone needs a dose of cute or any convincing that the little cories are awesome :) Rep thinks the cories sinking pellets are very yummy too... and it's funny, he's figured out that when they swarm it means there is food.
I hope my betta doesnt hog the cory's food when I have the tank up and running :') I remember a member on the forum talking about coming home to a mysteriously fat betta everyday, turns out he was chomping on the algae wafers meant for the other fish xD
Just wondering for future ref, but what foods do you feed your cories? :)
The cories do get most of it because after a few bites the betta loses interest in it (I'm not convinced he's eating much, it's mostly just trying - it takes the wafers a while to get soft, the cories are better ate nibbling away while the betta tries to unsuccessfully bite off chunks).
So far I've been feeding my cories mostly hikari mini algae wafers and hikari (tropical) sinking wafers... not every day, they get one or the other every other day or so (same schedule for feeding my pleco's and oto's in my big tank). They will also go after any betta food that hits the bottom, and when I feed frozen foods to my betta they go nuts over that, especially brine shrimp :)
Just remember they are omnivores and do best with a variety of foods.
I am pretty sure I got my hikari sinking wafers at Petco (my mini algae wafers came from ebay, I've never seen anything but the bigger ones locally).. and Petco should also have the Omega One algae rounds (which I haven't tried yet.. I already had the Hikari)
Bigger wafers can be broken up.. I had bought my mini ones first when I got otos months ago, then a couple of months ago when I got my BN plecos I got the bigger ones since they were going through several smaller ones each time I fed them.
