Am I Over Feeding?
 
I just did a water change yesterday to suck some food off the bottom but when my cories go swimming around the bottom and play in the sand, i have a bunch of tiny floaters everywhere. Am I over feeding? I Feed 6 sinking pellets once or twice a day. I have 6 cories.

I keep eight in 56 gal and feed them once a day with three or four pellets. They also eat the flake food that makes it past the smaller fish. If you have food being kicked up by fish. then I might consider redicing the food offered and the frequency.

I think 6 pellets for 6 cories is too much. When they eat do they all eat together? If so, you probably only need 1-2 pellets since they share them anyway. In the morning and the evening.

Hmm...now I wonder about mine lol! But I never see much left over when I do a wc. They eat pretty much everything. Are you cories babies still? When I got my pandas,they were tiny lil things. I didnt feed them much then. They sure grew though! I havent measured but I am sure they are between 1.5 and 2 inches. Big mama panda is definetly(grr cant spell that word to save my life) 2 inches.
