Yes, he kept going for the micro sinking pellets I was feeding my pygmy's. People suggested to feed the cory's after lights out and it seems to be working, the cory's are able to get the food. I also drop their food towards the back of the tank where it's heavily planted so it's harder for my betta to find the food.Have you been able to keep your betta from eating their food? Mine waited until I left the room and when I came back he looked like he was about to burst. The cories weren't thrilled with that type of food anyway, but I don't want an obese betta!
They nibble on them until they become softer and then they're able to take chunks out. It's funny watching them eat because you would seem them carrying a micro pellet around because it's too big to fit in their mouths!My betta got stuck in plants trying to get their food. He's a very determined boy. Are the micro pellets small enough for pygmys that are only half an inch long? They even have trouble eating presoaked sinking wafers
