I bought a few Corydoras a couple of weeks ago so I had to get some supplies. I haven’t seen them eat anything yet but I’m hoping they like at least one of these. Are there any other dried foods folks have found that Cory’s like?
At this time f year the easiest are definitely mosquito larvae, you just need a builders bucket, a handful of grass cutting and a cork. Fill the bucket up with water, add the grass cuttings, put the bucket in the shade, add the cork, wait a week or so, and net out the mosquito larvae . The mosquitoes will find the bucket and the female perches on the cork to lay her eggs. These will remain productive until the autumn, although you may need to add some more grass cuttings. The buckets will also produce blood-worms (another midge larvae), but not in the same amounts.are they easy enough to keep alive or is there an easier live food to try first?
You definitely need to harvest the larvae fairly regularly. I've found any small puddles of water get mosquito larvae in them as soon as they last a week or so. They only need some dried leaves etc in the water.could there be a issue bringing mosquitos to the garden?
