So -how much- should they be fed? I have 5 panda cories and I'm not sure how much they should eat.
I am no expert on this. I let my snail population tell me when I am overfeeding, and I do overfeed my cories because I want them to breed (which they do every month or so).
5 Pandas? Start with 5 shrimp pellets, an algae tablet, and about half a cube of bloodworms (melt the whole cube, squirt half of it to the bottom of the tank with a turkey baster and put the rest in at the top of the water for the rest of the fishies.) One of those a day (not all three). See how your water parameters and snail population go and adjust accordingly.
