Hello neo...

Feed a variety of frozen foods, like blood worms, plankton, brine and mysis shrimp and beef heart. San Fran Bay has good products. Freeze dried tubifex worms from Hikari or Tetra are nutritional. My livebearers and Corys love a little minced garlic. There isn't a more nutrient rich herb available. Spice World is good. Get your flaked food from Cobalt. They're likely the best.

DRY
Sinking catfish pellets, algae wafers and/or spirulina flakes, regular flakes, omnivore sinking pellets.
FROZEN
Bloodworm, daphnia, black mosquito larvae.

Thats the food I use, variety is the key.

The Cory will eat everything, the tetra will eat off of the floor if they recognise it as food, I have pictures of my tetra eating sinking catfish pellets from the substrate.

Good luck!
