Time lapse of a betta eating a slice of silverside.

Sometimes I like to treat my tanks to a piece of silverside or clam, unfortunately it comes with a great big water change for dessert.

Thats actually really cool. Those pygmy cories are crazy fun to watch dart around everywhere!

Corydoras Pygmaeus - though, whenever there's no food they pretty much just relax on the substrate or their rock.

If I had to do it again I'd go with Corydoras habrosus for their more energetic and entertaining behavior.

It's interesting they go for a chunk of fish since they are more insectivores.

I'm not sure which species of silverfish but use saltwater fish to feed so not to pass on nasty freshwater diseases.
