  • Question: Feeding corydoras

    Never underestimate the power of a smile

    Omega One shrimp pellets http://www.amazon.com/Omega-One-Shri.../dp/B0043T92B2 are very good. They break down ofter a while and that makes it easy for the corries to eat. OSI also makes sinking shrimp pellets. There are many foods intended for bottom feeders. Just avoid things that have corn in them.

    For frozen, Brine shrimp, mysis shrimp, beef heart. They'll eat pretty much anything. Don't feed blood worms as a staple.

      Bloodworms and such will be strictly once twice a week at most.

      They sell frozen mussel meat would the cories like that?

      So sinking shrimp pellets they will probably steal some of the snail food too

      I will check the ingredients before I buy anything
      Thank you Cichlidnut

        Assuming the muscle meat is small enough for them to swallow, they'll eat it. They are little vacuums

            He's sending flakes right? Flakes are not very good food for corries. By the time they get to the bottom of the tank, they will have leached out most of their nutrients. A good quality pellets is a better option.

              I've ordered flakes for the angels and rainbows and bars for the cories and plec and wafers for the snails

              I went for a variety

              Do cories like veggies too?

                They are primarily carnivorous but some veggies in their diet is good for them.

                  Thank you Cichlidnut I usually feed the snails zucchini so I'm sure they will have a munch on that well if they can get past Bong who after last nights shannanigans will need all the food she can get

                    I have read that in the wild that they ear plant decaying matter. I think any meat base food they would appreciate.

                        I know my corries will go NUTS when I put brine shrimp in the tank, its hilarious to watch them eat them. Your right they are like little vacuum's when it comes to feeding time.
