  1. Question Corys Not Eating??


    0 Not allowed!
    I just got corys about 4 days ago and it doesn't seem like they're eating. I got them Aqueon Bottom Feeder Tablets because I figured they would eat them. I broke the tablet in half figuring they wouldn't eat too much but they didn't seem to come out to eat it at all. In fact, after the other fish are done eating their food, they go for the little tablet when the corys don't seem to at all. Am I doing something wrong?

    I've noticed our cories will eat about anything. Usually they eat the left over tropical sinking pellets i feed our angel fish and i drop a few sinking algae wafers in when i turn the lights out.

    Do you see them actually eat though? I never see them really eat any flakes off the bottom before the others get it and they don't seem to eat these tablets...hmmm....

    They go crazy for it. And the angel fish and betta never touch the sinking algae tablets so it has to be the cories eating them. Cories are scavengers and do a good job at eating left over food and things that you can't see. I've even seen mine eating algae off of fake plants. Also, they are nocturnal so they may be eating after lights out also.

    Well...I guess I'll be able to tell if they all starve to death...but I think there should be enough for them.

    How many cories do you have? They like to be in groups of 6 or more?

    They usually sleep during the day and eat at night so how can you tell?

    My Cory's are moving around the tank all day. Early afternoon they will kick back in the plants or under a piece of wood for a bit. The rest of the time they are a dedicated cleaning crew. Especially the babies, 1/2" long, they never stop eating. I love watching them. It's almost like they are having appetizers all day and the main coarse at night.

    They eat now...I guess it took a while for them to figure out that was food. Only a few come out and eat when I drop one of those things in, but I see the others come out occasionally and I see them all digging in the gravel...so I figure they eat something!
