I have yet another question about my community tank. All the inhabitants are doing very well. They are healthy and they all get along. I currently have a ten gallon with four platies (One male, three females), three smaller cories, and a betta. Eventually I would like to upgrade to a 20 gallon, but for now the size of all the fish allow them to live in the ten gallon quite happily. I also have some plants including elodea, java moss, and this other leafy plant. The plants are doing pretty well...not growing too fast or slow. I notice the platies enjoy picking on the plants, which keeps them trimmed for the most part. I also have a few ramshorn snails that came in with the plants from the other tank in the kitchen. The betta keeps that population controlled by snacking on them! However, I am feeding tropical fish flakes for the platies and the cories. The cories seem to be doing ok on that, and the betta eats the flakes as well. However, I am afraid that the tropical fish flakes don't have the nutrients needed for the betta or the cories. I was originally feeding betta food with the flakes (The platies will NOT eat the betta food, I'm guessing because it is composed of meat rather than plant based), but I noticed the betta was eating both his food AND the flake food and just eating way too much. I stopped feeding both foods and give him a couple of betta pellets every now and then. Is this ok? Is there something else I should be feeding them? I tried to choose a tropical food that has ingredients that all the fish would like and do well on and they all seem of good weight, but I know it takes awhile sometimes for the fish to show signs of malnutrition. I figured I'd ask here since its difficult to find an answer via google. Also, I usually feed once a day or every other day and I only feed enough so that some gets down to the cories before the platies and betta eats it all on the top.
