Any tips for feeding cories?
I always seem to have trouble getting the 6 cories I have enough food to eat. There are 3 mollies in the tank that always eventually bully the cories away from any sinking algae wafers I put in the tank. I've tried using whole wafers, breaking them up into numerous chunks, nighttime feeding, and simultaneous feeding but the end result always seems to be the same.
The poor guys don't look nearly as healthy as when I originally got them, and most of them are going through some stages of fin rot although I think I have that taken care of and they're starting to recover. They do get some bloodworms and brine shrimp as well, but everything in the tank eats those up fast so there isn't much time for the cories to get their fill.
Any suggestions would be great, they're my favorite fish and I don't like to see them struggling!
