Is my cory getting the food he needs?
I have my speckled cory cat, Andrew Ryan, in a community tank. In the tank, besides him, are
1 Von Rio Tetra
1 Bleeding Heart Tetra
1 Phantom Tetra
1 Rummynose Tetra
1 female Betta
These other guys are all very quick to get to the food (I feed once every two days) and I often see Andrew Ryan going along the bottom, seeming to be nibbling at something. I worry he isn't getting the food he needs, but I don't want to put more food into the tank to overfeed the other fish. What should I do?
Once in a while I add a few sinking pellets after my lights turn off for my corys. I wouldn't worry, it takes less food than you'd think. You may want to add some additional corys - they do better in a groups of 3 or more.
Thanks- I'll definitley grab some sinking pellets when I go to the pet store to get food for my tarantula and snake. (:
I wish I could add more, but I fear the tank would be overcrowded if I did.
Get more cories and what size is your tank? That is what I suggest.
If this is the five gallon tank you mentioned a couple weeks ago,, I would not add any more food.
The tank you have these fish in is VERY small, and between the fish and fish waste,any more food will likely result in dead fish .
It's a shame ,the number of fishes you chose to place in the 5 gal if indeed that's where they are despite warnings from other's.
