Just thought I'd give you a small update.
The cories have settled in nicely. The pale guy is naturally more silver than the others. They're all eating well (got some of those pellets) One night I wanted to add variety so I tried flakes. Neon, even though when he was alone HATED flakes, couldn't stand the thought of other fish eating food he could have so he ate them. I then devised a system in which I grind up the flakes to a fine powder, stick in a container of water until they sink, and then use a turkey baster to put them on the bottom. I fed bloodworms and it was sooo cute! They sucked the worms up slowely. I wanna feed them again now lol.
