I have 6 in a 4 gallon tank. All I do is feed them and they spawn about every other month.

When you do a water change drop the temp a couple degrees with the new water, it simulates a rain storm/influx of new water as during their rainy season/spawning season.

I do water changes quite often but its a community tank with ghost shrimp as well.
Unknown if there will be fry and if they would survive.

Do they need sand or rock to be happy? i just bought two for my planted tank where there isn't much bare substrate. I'm also just using regular fish flakes and worried whether they will be able to compete with my guppies for those. I have algae wafers but my guppies tend to find them too. i am pretty sure some food will make its way to the substrate but i dont want to overfeed

Mine absolutely adore sinking food sticks.
To facilitate this without making a mess in the substrate I bought a bunch of cheap glass Petri dishes in the international market place (have many tanks) the lids are about 60mm the dishes themselves slightly smaller and use the lids as dishes to keep the food from disentigrating and dropping into the substrate.
Works great or it would if my 2 prego fancy guppies would stop ripping everything to bits lol

So how do you make sure your corys can compete against the guppies?

I just put enough in there that there's plenty for all.
The 2 psycho guppies will eat leftovers.
