Cory's and eating

I put 2 skunk cory's in my new tank 2 weeks ago. They seem happy and swim together often, up and down the tank but only occasionally at the bottom.

I drop a couple of different types of sinking wafers for them but how do I know if they are eating them? I have seen them at the bottom looking for food sometime but I've never seen them eating the wafers which are small and they dissolve. So I don't know if they eat at all. Any suggestions?

Corys are great scavengers. They will be finding bits of food and eating just fine.

You can also try to spot feed them by using a turkey baster and blow some thawed frozen or live food at them and you should see them eating it. If they don't, that could be a problem. If they do, that's a sign that they are feeding and probably going after the wafers in the dark. ( If that's the case, feed the wafers closer to lights out time. )
