feeding pygmy corys
i bought 6 pygmy corys about two months ago, and slowly 4 of them have died. (one was my fault...i dropped a rock on him when cleaning the tank...they are so small that it killed him instantly.....r.i.p little fella :(
the other three just sort of died of no real cause. no disease, no stress. i am beginning to think they just starved, cause i realized that i have never seen them eat very much. the two i have look healthy, and seem fine. i want to get more, so they feel more comfortable, but i want to make sure they will get plenty to eat.
the tank they are in now has 6 harlequinn rasboras and one male cherry barb (very docile male).
when i put flakes in the tank, the other fish eat them before any fall to the pygmys, so i began to break up 1-2 large sinking pellets in for them. is this enough food? is there something else i could feed them? they don't seem to like brine shrimp.
