true sae and pygmy corys planted tank
The tank is a planted 55 gallon and houses 20 tetras, 20 amanos, 3 otos, a true siamese algae eater, and 10 pygmy corys. I try to feed the corys hikari wafers and micro pellets but the more aggressive sae and amanos usually get the bulk of the food. I've tried breaking-up wafers and feeding after lights-out but observe more aggressive species-including tetra- intercepting feed.Furthermore, the sae harasses the corys at feeding time- nips at them and they flee. Contrary to what i've read on forums the corys are reclusive and invisible most of the time. In addition, it seems self-defeating to over feed the amano shrimp and sae algae grazers. I'm in the process of trapping and transferring the corys to their own 10 gallon tank although its completely carpeted with hairgrass and may present a whole other set of problems. any feedback appreciated.
