Feeding Cories

So I got two panda cories yesterday. They seem to be doing fine, one always follows the other.

I just have one question, how do I feed 'em if they are always at the bottom?

They eat sinking shrimp pellets, sinking carnivore wafers, and you can supplement with algae wafers. But really, cories need to be in groups of four or more. How big is your tank?

Right now I got em in a 5 gallon tank. I got another betta in a temporary 1 gallon tank.

I'll be buying a 10 gallon dividing it for both of 'em

Cories need at least ten undivided gallons. Is it possible for you to keep one betta and four cories in the ten gallon and keep the other betta in your five gallon? That would be a great setup for everyone.

Mine eat algae pellets, And i'm almost positive then only needs groups of 3-4. I might be mistaken with otocinclus.

Yes, cories are schooling fish and prefer larger groups. 4-6 is fine.

Like the others have said, cories need to be in groups of at least 4 and have at least ten undivided gallons.
