    Be aware Corys are omnivores, but on the carnivorious site (95%). Algaewafers, spirulina zuchini and flakes shouldn't be mainfood. When not provided with enough meaty food they defo get heathproblems or even die !!!
    No Cory, No Glory !!

    He gets a lot of the pellets that my bolivian rams miss because their so hard to feed.

    He looks like a plump sausage.

    Okay but remember fat doesn't have to mean healthy. I think Corys should have there own high quality food and not the leftovers from other fish (most fish have other needs in protein, fat, minerals, vitamins aso : that's why there are different pellets of the same brand).
    No Cory, No Glory !!

    I feed my corys about 6+ different foods for their diet (Sterbai and false bandits) the more fresh food you can feed the better! find a good LFS that sells frozen bloodworms and brine shrimp we have Sally's brand where I live. I thaw in a container and use a turkey baster to get them to the bottom if you have lots of tetras or something trying to steal them; they also love hikari sinking wafers made for bottom feeders.

    It really makes a difference in their health rotating foods everyday; they also get cichlid gold pellets (crush them in fingers and they sink), tetra color tropical flake food, API bottom feeder premium shrimp pellets, zoo med freeze dried red shrimp (soak and tear in small pieces then use the turkey baster method) and they also enjoy hikari tropical algae wafers but they get mostly protein hence the target feeding when I have something like bloodworms.

    I also noticed when I put my pleco's veggies in my Sterbai will eat such as pumpkin and some types of squash my false bandits are chilling with my BN pleco munching on blanched zucchini right now they get plenty of meat but they will eat til their so fat they don't feel like moving lol.
    Long time fish keeper most experience with CA/SA cichlids, natives like sunfish, and aggressive catfish.
    Currently have a 29g planted with 14 candy cane tetras, 6 sterbai corys, 6 melini corys, a roided out tiger angelfish and 1 mustache wearing albino longfin pleco.
    Oh and they all get along amazingly!!! went through 4 BN plecos and 2 angelfish until I got ones with the right temperament but it's the most mellow tank now.
