Corydoras unable to eat
Right now, I have1 marbled hatchetfish, 1 corydoras ambiacus, 1 corydoras elegans, and 4 caridina multidenta(japonica). My problem is that my corydoras are unable to find the pellets I put in for them. It used to be that the mid-water swimmers would start attacking the pellets, notifying the cories that they were there. However, a strange virus killed them off. Now, the cories swim right past the pellets. When they just come close to eating one, one of my shrimp steals it.The belly of the ambiacus is starting to look sunken. How can I make sure my cories get food?
There is 0 ammonia and nitrite and nitrate is 16. Ph is 7.4. The temperature is 77 and the tank has been set up for 5 years. The substrate is gravel, but I might add sand to a portion of the tank.
