    Hello everyone so I have a new 20 gallon tank set up with sand and 3 fake plants I gave about 3 corys also , I'm not sure if it's just me but have any of you who have kept corys noticed that they just love to touch the plants alot like over and over and sometimes they will go inside and get stuck and wiggle out unharmed I have noticed that my corys just like to keep playing and feeling the plants repeatedly with the whiskers so has any one else noticed there corys do this e7ddbe5a92eedd4dbb1a479640595da0.jpg 9a99c4a2e6c392c798595d6cb68a4d2a.jpg b61a47c3b70b323fd7aea656ea25a195.jpg 47ae9be2594c21ab891b8c043cc262bc.jpg 33b9df514eacb1742edd7b0b3b06c488.jpg

    It could be them eating algae off the plants. I have real plants and mine get so hyped about plant roots :/

    Corys aren't algae eaters, they're probably foraging for tiny food particles & the micro organisms in the plants

    @DoubleDutch meat, sinking pellets, and whatever hits the ground that the other fish don't get first :joyful:
