  1. Default Feeding Cory Cats.

    0 Not allowed!
    I have a pebble substrate.

    When I feed my Cory Cats the small bottom feeder wafers tend to drop down into the pebbles and it makes it hard for them to get it.

    I went to my LFS and picked up a small reptile water dish and buried it in the substrate.

    The Cory Cats love it.

    I use a 18" extension tube from my Aqueon water changer to drop the wafers into the dish. I have found that this method keeps my community tank much cleaner.

    When I begin dropping pellets and flake food for the other fish the Cory Cats actually go to their dish and wait for the wafers now.

    Nice pebbles but indeed not very cory friendly. Good solution, surprised they actually wait for it.

    Wow that pretty neat trick I would have never thought of that one of the things I like most about the AC is creative solutions people come up with to make things easier for us and healthier for our fish.

    This is a great idea.

    I've been flummoxed about how to ensure that my cories get their food before my angels find it. I doubt this would work to solve that problem, but I love the simplicity and ingenuity.

    Love it, Tate. That's an excellent idea. I can imagine the ease of cleaning with that method.

    Great little idea there. I'd say that's quite an awesome sight all those cories in the dish together. :)
