    I use Wardley pellets and don't have any clouding issues with it.

    My Corys also get Nori sheets, need to be sunk in some manner as well.

    Another thing to add for the occasional treat is some earth worm, chipped into nice bite size pieces. A Bit messy for you, but they love it.
    Currently keeping the following species:
    Glyptoperichthys joselimaianus L001
    Baryancistrus sp. L018
    Hypancistrus sp. L066
    Panaque maccus L104
    Microglanis poecilus
    Serrasalmus nattereri
    Poecilia reticulata
    Yasuhikotakia morleti
    Corydoras aeneus
    Corydoras aeneus Albino
    Corydoras arcuatus
    Corydoras panda
    Corydoras trilineatus
    Corydoras paleatus
    Corydoras leucomelas

    Do you keep that piranha by itself? It'd eat everything else you listed.

    Ya the one thing that isn't mentioned on there is the worms.
    How much you feed is up to your corys. I am not a cory expert but you may need to feed more than recommended if you have big fat corys or less if you have small ones.
    I think shrimp pellets come in many differnet sizes.
    I have aquarian shrimp pellets and they are about this long |||||

    Umm, I have 75E, 55, 20T, 20L, and Fifteen 10g tanks.
    Each species is in its own tank. They range from 3-6 of each kind.

    For the most part. The Piranhas (6) and the South American Bumble Bee cats (3) are in a 75E. The Cats live in a rock pile, they do a real good job of grabbing any chunks of goldfish that hit the bottom and retreating back to their caves. (they get other food too)

    I did have a school of corys in with the piranhas for 10 months, they didn't bother the corys at all. I only took them out because I was trying to spawn the corys, but from what I can tell I have all females of the species that was in with them... I won't be putting them back in, just thought I'd mention that from my experience not all fish are food to them.

    Feeding piranhas feeder goldfish is unnatural for them, and the goldfish can easily introduce disease. Just because they haven't yet doesn't mean they won't.
    In nature over 90 percent of the gut analysis of piranhas are crustacean and insect larvae based. Less than 10 percent were fish bones. Eating fish is a rare treat for them in nature, and giving them goldfish all the time is insufficient nutrition.

    Well thanks for assuming I don't know what I am doing. My goldfish are kept for 30days before they are fed to the piranhas.
    When did I ever say all I gave them was goldfish?
    What is your source on the gut analysis? What species of piranha was it referring to? What season was it conducted?

    Everything I have read says up to 90% of a RBPs diet is meat of some manner, most of sick or already dead fish. But can also include birds, rodents and other mammals, reptiles. With crustacean and insects making up the smallest portion. Vegetation making up the last 10%

    Quite a few different things actually.
    FD Red River Shrimp
    Fish Fillets from the super market. I'm in a small town so sometimes they have no fish, so I'll get some of the fake crab meat, which is mostly fish.
    Earth Worms, wax worms, and red worms, occasionally.

    They stopped eating flake food a few months ago.

    They'll sometimes eat the shrimp pellets dropped in for the cats, but for the most part they won't take them.

    They make carnivore pellets, haven't tried them yet, local lfs doesn't carry any. They are on my list the next time I order from dr. foster tho.

    Forgot non-meaty foods.
    When they where little they ate nori sheets, but that stopped. They get some cucumber, and the occasional banana now.

    This thread is getting a little off topic...from algae tablets to feeder goldfish.

    I feed my 3 cories 1 veggie tablet daily. i am getting 3 more so i will feed 6 of them 2 tablets. I give the 3 cats 3 shrimp pellets, so i will give 6 6. I guess i should give them EACH 2 shrimp pellets daily and veggie wafers every other day, huh? All right. And can i put a paper clip around some bloodworms for them once a week?
