What do cory cats eat?

Cory cats eat the following:

  • Sinking pellets or flakes
  • Sinking algae wafers
  • Bottom feeder tablets
  • Small insects
  • Larvae
  • Freeze-dried and live bloodworms

You should feed your corys twice every day to keep them happy and healthy. Only give them what they can consume within two or three minutes to avoid overfeeding and bloating. You should also provide your corys with various high-quality foods, and rotate their diet every few days.

Additionally, because corys are bottom feeders, they love to eat scraps and leftover food from other fish in the tank. Sometimes, they might even eat fish poop and other fish’s eggs.
