Feeding amanos, otos
My 40B currently has 4 Otos, 6 Cardinal Tetras (to be 11 when 5 more finish QT), and 8 amano shrimp. There will also eventually be 12 pygmy cories.
I currently feed a pinch a day of food to the Cardinals, and though they haven't been in there a week yet, I plan on feeding the Otos with Romaine lettuce slices 1-2x a week. (i fed them romaine every day of quarantine for a month)
I have 2 questions:
1) Will the lettuce slices feed the snails more than the otos? I have a sneaky suspicion that the snail will be devouring it while the Otos didn't touch it in QT until it had been in the tank for over 24 hours. Blanching didn't help with this. Wondering if I'll see a snail population explosion...
2) Is crumbling up some algae wafers and dropping them in once in a while OK for the shrimp? I guess this is how the cories will be fed too. Again probably a snail feeder more than anything...
