It has its perks but the fish hobby is one of those things that you will never stop learning. Thats why I came on here, i'm learning a lot from everyone else and getting good ideas that can help me do my job a little better. Its just a temporary thing while I finish school but I plan to be in the hobby for life.

Albino Cories scavenging...

While you guys were mentioning watching the cories scavenge...I bought some variety wafers last night and I keep trying to drop them near to my baby cory catfish, but my lyretail mollies go for it and eat it. One of them, affectionately called "The Cow" bc he's a dalmation, sucked it up and pushed it into a hidey hole so he could eat at it alone!

My tank is undergoing break in so I am afraid to add in any more food, but I want my Cory to be fed!

Any suggestions? Thanks a bunch!

Continuing toward lifelong learning.

Use some pellets in addition to the wafers and put them in together so that the pellets sink while the molly is working on the other stuff. If the molly gets too large, it will likely kill itself due to over eating. Unfortunately, fish are opportunistic feeders and will try and eat as much as possible. If you have another tank to split them off for th emore and less aggressive eaters, this would be preferable.
