African Dwarf Frog And Corydoras Feeding

    I've had 10 African dwarf frogs for a few weeks now in my 30G tank.
    I've been feeding them frozen bloodworms. I sprinkle them at the front of the tank so I can see who comes forward to eat.
    I've ordered frog pellets too but as I'm in the U.K. they take about a month to arrive.

    I've just got 6 peppered corys and they're like hovers at feeding time. I know a lot of people try hand feed their frogs but as I have 10 of them it's a little difficult.
    So I've been putting a little bit of food in the tank so the frogs smell it and come to the front of the tank like I've trained them to do, then add more food and some bigger pellets for the corys at the back so they're distracted.
    My question is how much should I be feeding them? As I'm worried I may be over or underfeeding them.

    If I remember from my frog days, it was 1-3 frog pellets a day, depending on the size of the frog and how much they ate- don't know what that translates to in Bloodworms :confused:. It sounds like you've come up with a way to feed them. Good for you, it's often difficult to feed frogs when you've got fish in the same tank, especially bottom feeders.

    I have 4 ADF (1 male 3 fem) and 4 julii cory's (think 2 fem and 2 male, but 1 is ultra matriarch fem) - the cory's are piggies (blood worms) - however, I have 2 moss mats (live moss) and use the turkey baster to place the bloodworms on each moss mat as well as a small amount near the rock they love to lay under - however, the moss mat seems to make it easier for them not to take in a mouthful of gravel as well as they can hold on easier - my frogs are insane for their worms! (mine did also like to eat cherry bomb LIVE shrimp - eeeeek! that was a shocker)
