Corys- What Do You Feed?

    I will be getting a small school of panda corys and wondering what everyone feeds theirs. I have algae wafers and shrimp pellets already that I'm thinking they will eat, as well as probably some left overs from flake food and occasional blood worms from the fish. Thoughts?

    Minus the algae wafers, that's what I feed mine. They will readily take live foods as well. I toss some micro worms in a few times a week.

    I feed mine sinking shrimp pellets. They love them. Occasionally I will feed algae wafers, they tolerate them, but prefer the shrimp.

    They'll eat anything really and if you have any other fish that are messy eaters you won't ever really have to feed them directly. Mine just sweep the tank all day and are fat n happy ac8af076e6e4d5f9e67e1bc24797946c.jpg

    Mine are just babies, a little over an inch, and I feed them crushed up shrimp pellets and flake food. Flake food is good because cory cats can eat it at just about any size, but if they have tank mates they won't get a consistent amount, maybe none. It's good to mix some herbivore food in there too, keeps them healthy.

    Mine get plenty of live foods.
    Large assortment of sinking pellets, NLS HiKari Tete cory pellers and the list goes on.
    Along with rapashy gells.

    My cories's main diet are shrimp wafers. Sometimes they catch some of the flakes or bloodworms or brine shrimp for the top dwellers.

    Mine get leftovers from the others (flake, daphnia etc), occasionally algae wafers and daily catfish pellets. They go crazy for the catfish pellets (attatched)
