Bronze cory

Hey everyone


I'm just wondering if bronze cory fish can live on tetra pro color flakes or do I have to get seperate food for them?

Thanks

Hello norm...

All the Corys I keep are meateaters, but they like a vegetable biscuit once in a while and a little minced garlic. I feed frozen brine and Mysis shrimp, beef heart, bloodworms, krill and plankton. The frozen just has the animal and water. I generally pass on flaked foods. I've never seen a container of this type of food that doesn't have a long list of additives. The names, I can't begin to pronounce. If I don't know what it is, I pass on it.

BBradbury is right but corys should take whatever you feed them. just make sure the flakes sink to the bottom of the tank

Thanks guys. I feed flakes everyday expect Fridaywhen they get frozen bloodworm as a treat. Would I be better buying some pellets for the flake days just for the corys?
