I have a newly stocked tank with:
2 Male Dwarf Gourmis
3 Dalmation Mollies
8 Neon Tetras
4 RUmmy Nosed Tetras
4 Glow Light Tetras
I have a couple questions about feeding.
I feed flake food for all of the fish (except the corys). I'm new to this so I'm not sure how much to put in. I put just a pinch in and after about 30 seconds the filter caused all of the falkes to "snowfall" all around the aquarium. Is this normal or shouldthe flakes stay on the surface so the fish can "come up" and get them? The fish were eating some of it, but it seemed like most of it just ended up on the bottom. I plan on feeding every other day.
For the corys, I'm having a more serious problem with feeding. I bought algae wafers and broke up two pieces for the 6 to eat. They never seemed to find them. I waited about 20 minutes and then gravel vacced but the food wouldn't suck up into the vac so they are either still on the gravel or may have been eat (although I'm almost positive they were not eaten). Does it take time for the corys to figure out the algae wafers or am I doing something wrong? Also, here is an updated picture of my tank for anyone who cares!
