Mine seem to actively feed only when the lights go off. Are they naturally nocturnal fish?

Not striclty nocturnal, as they will feed and work the tank during the day, if they are confident, but they are often more active at dusk and dawn etc.

I think there just kinda like cats, they cat-nap for 15 minutes, then snoop around for 20, and just keep doing that for the entire day.

My pepper cories are active from the time the lights come on in the morning, till about 11:00.

Then they rest until around 14:00, by 15:00 they are active again and looking for food.


I feed mine at 06:30 and 17:15.


Many times when I put on the light they are already very active, catfish are nocturnal - cories (fortunately) are also active during the day.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for your help. I've noticed that my corys seem to have certain times of day where they rest. You could almost set a watch to them! For the most part, they seem to be very busy little creatures and a lot of fun to watch!
