    If its freeze dried not frozen make sure its soaked for 10-20mins before putting in the tank for feeding otherwise it can cause digestive issues. Obviously frozen needs to be defrosted :)
    Otherwise looks like they’re having a good time :)

    • Who is your favourite?
    Mildly off topic but when I learnt this and done it with bloodworm I didn't turn my filter off.. It was hilarious because there was just an absolute swarm of food and the fish went crazy and then I seen it all slowly going towards the filter haha.

    Very cute corys. It's always nice watching them eat I think.

    • I will say this only once, OK a million times....
    Freeze-dried food always needs a good soak as Iain has said. If you don't it takes on water from the digestive system and that's what causes problems.
    Corys are always fun. :)
