    hello a quick question, can someone tell me what are the best foods to give to Cory’s like the brand and type of food etc. I’m gonna get Cory’s soon and I just want them to have the best kind of diet and also what are things they can’t have.

    They also really like fresh or frozen foods.

    I feed my cories diced up shrimp, bloodworms, brine shrimp, and basically whatever the fish in my aquarium are fed.

    Also, cories are carnivorous. Do not feed them veggies or algae wafers expecting them to eat it.

    Okay so they won’t eat it and they will only eat meaty foods okay. The other fish I will eat it.

    Yup!
    They may nibble on them, but they shouldn’t be fed just that.

    If you do get shrimp pellets, try to get pellets that have their first several ingredients as things starting with "whole," such as "whole krill," "whole salmon," "whole herring." The lower quality pellets have their first ingredients as fish meal, soybean powder, wheat meal, etc.

    I have had good luck with the Omega One brand of fish food including shrimp pellets, blood worm and tubifex worms. I feel like I am feeding my Cory's and everyone else well with this line of products. I also feed them Hakari Sinking wafers.
