    Sorry if it is a dumb question. . . I have a new aquarium and new cory catfish. Can the cories find their pellet food if it is EXACTLY the same color as the substrate?

    Easily. I'm not positive how they find it but I'm guessing a combo of smell and tasting everything. My dojo's know when feeding time is and smell when the pellets hit the water. Then they just vacume up everything including sand and when they find food, pause to eat it, then keep grubbing around.

    The little antennas in their mouth helps sniff out their food and uses it to feel around so easily they will find it by smell and feeling.
