Landon Posted September 13, 2022 Share Posted September 13, 2022 (edited) I have a 48 gallon tank with: 6 Orange Laser Cories 6 Congo Tetras - 4 males, 2 females 1 Hillstream Loach 2 Mystery Snails Amano Shrimp I was really enjoying my Cories but since adding Congo Tetras, I hardly ever see them. My biggest concern is that the Cories aren't getting much to eat. Anytime the Tetras see a Cory eating (the little buttwiggle), they push them aside and take it away. . I've tried feeding the Cories in a heavily planted corner of the tank, but the Tetra still seem to get in there I've tried feeding the Cories at night. They may be getting some of it, but it's hard to tell in the dark lol I usually feed them all at the same time, and I've tried different types of food (Repashy Gel, flakes, wafers, frozen food). The Tetra just snap it all up until they're bloated and lumpy. Nobody in the tank seems interested in veggies except for my snails One of my Cories has grown quite a bit, but the others are lagging behind. Also, it looks like one of them is starting to lose it's color. Would more Cories restore the balance at feeding time, or is this always an issue with aggressive eaters and Cories? My goal for this tank is to have a Spotted Congo Puffer at some point, so I imagine feeding times could get even more challenging...
