Stupid question about bottom feeding wafers

I have a 60 gallon that is heavily planted. I got dwarf sag carpet. Will it be okay to drop 2 or 3 wafers in for my 10 cories and 6 siamese algae eaters? Will I get ammonia spikes if they dont eat them all?

If you have that many bottom feeders, it's very unlikely they will leave any food behind. Start with two and then go up or down as needed.

You can also break them apart into halves, quarters, etc. But just like DaveK mentioned, start with two, see if your bottom feeders finish that and adjust from there.
