I got 6 pygmy cories two days ago and they haven't shown any interest in eating. I've tried frozen blood worms, crushed flakes, and sinking pellets. I know sometimes it takes a day or two for them to settle down so I could just be paranoid, but any advice would be much appreciated! What do your pygmy cories eat?!

Also, I have a sponge filter and a HOB in the tank and the current is pretty significant. Could this be pushing them around too much and stressing/tiring them out? I see them chilling on my anubias and on the bottom of the tank quite regularly. They are starting to shoal though (at least 3-4 of them are anyway)

Thanks in advance!

Hmm okay I'll be a little more patient then! Maybe they're foraging at night...

I agree. When I brought home my pygym cories, they didn't eat for a few days and I was starting to get worried. But now they forage and seem to enjoy the mini sinking algae wafers.

I'm sure they are picking at things your not seeing . I just feed the tiny fish in with them fry food or decamp brine shrimp eggs and crushed omega one flake and they grow .they find stuff .
