    I have put live brine shrimp into my 30 gallon and all my fish love eating them except I have never seen my Cory's actually go after them or eat any of them nor my nor has my bristlenose pleco, will corydoras eat live brine shrimp? Sounds like a silly question and seems likr they would but haven't seen them eat any I always watch when I feed

    Hi, corys do like brine shrimp but they won’t hunt them as they’re not fast enough, they’ll wait for the shrimp to sink to the bottom & then hoover them up :)

    Any corydoras species will eat anything, however, they're a bit more on the carnivorous side. :)

    They probably have a better chance eating frozen brine shrimp, as they dont swim away
