    When I drop food in, my angel, platy and especially my molly hoover everything up. If it falls and hits the substrate, my molly eats it!! I want to make sure that my cories are getting enough to eat! I have bottom feeder sinking wafers, but the molly pecks at that, too. These are small albino cories.

    Try feeding your other fish at one end of the tank & the corys food at the other, you can use a turkey baster to get it to the bottom quicker.
    Also try feeding 10 mins or so after lights out as corys are active at night whilst the other fish rest.

    I always feed my cories after the lights have been out for a bit. I drop their food in the same spot in the tank - they now wait in that spot after the lights are out (back when I had guppies, they would be all over the cory's food if I didn't drop it in after dark).
