    Depends on the size of the wafers. 6 cories I'd feed half or 3/4 of a wafer broken in a few pieces. A single BN depends a lot on the tank. With the big hikari wafers and a tank with enough algae I'd feed 1/3 of a wafer every other day.

    It's important to note that it totally depends on the size of the wafers also, Keep an eye on them.
    This is directly related to your snail problem though.[See post #2].

    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

    I never thought I would have this problem. When I had my GSP's in the 55gal tank's I could not keep enough snails for them! 850R I have cut way back on food and when I do my water change tomorrow I'm going to use the wafer as bait and scoop out and get as many as I can. I know it won't solve the problem but maybe between that, cutting way back on food and the assassin snails I can gain a little control of the situation ...I hope

    What is way back? I would cut it in half, Seriously.

    It will get under control but it will take time, It didn't get this way overnight. Fixing it takes time too.

    All in time.

    I started fasting all the fish 1 day a week as you suggested and I always did feed the angel and harlequins only what they could eat as it dropped. The Harlequins never pick food up they only eat as it falls and I only have 1 angel so I feed very little there. I was putting like 4 or 5 wafers one night and the next about 8 -10 of the shrimp pellets so as you suggested I was way over feeding. Everything was always gone the next morning but the rate the snails have been multiplying they must of been eating their little hearts out ... well and laying eggs. I just love my little corys and BN and want to make sure they get enough I don't have much algae in my tank. What should I look for to know that I'm not feeding enough? I know about feeding to much

    Your BN should have a plump rounded belly not sunken looking at all and corys should be solid looking also but considering your snail population I doubt you are even close to underfeeding them.
