I recently got some albino corydoras that are probably 1-2 months old? They are very small right now and I was wondering how do I go about feeding them? I tried to give them flakes but they float at the surface. I also tried to give them the New Life Spectrum 1mm pellets, but they are too big for their mouths

Try .5 mm small fish formula also by NLS, my 5" fish are still eating those. I gotta finish the can before I buy a new one lol.

well you could get I cup of tank water, then crush the pellets or/and flakes into a fine powder. then sprinkle the powdered food in the cup. mix the water in the cup and let it settle for a minute (this is so that the food is soft) then pour the water into the tank. your cories will love it.

this is the trick I use with my ember tetra which have tiny mouths.

You can crush the food finely, mix with a little water then use a turkey baster to get it to the bottom for them
