Can i feed tadpole pelllets to corys?
 
I have 3 albino corys in my 10 gallon, and i was wondering if i could feed them these tadpole pellets:Zoo Med Aquatic Frog & Tadpole Food at PETCO

I have those pellets as leftovers from when i had tadpoles, and my giant danios always eat the flake food i give them before the flakes can land on the gravel, but not the pellets.

I don't know anything about tadpole pellets, but I do know that they are made for amphibians, not fish. I wouldn't do it. Chances are that they don't contain the correct nutrients and such for fish. You can get sinking wafers at any pet/fish store that will sink to the bottom for your corys. Mine also like algae wafers occasionally.

When I have had bottom feeders that don't get to food in time, I have pre-soaked the food so it would sink and then used a turkey baster to place it directly on the substrate for them.

Thats a good question, I'm really not sure. Maybe someone else will pop thier head in here with a better answer than that one!
