Default Feeding/ Temperature for Cory Cats

I have a 30 gallon tank. Just added 6 cory cats. Tank has 6 guppies 3 platties 1 molly, 1 sword. 7 neons, 5 Glow light Tetras, 3 black neon tetras, 1 dwarf blue neon rainbow, 1 pleco. Temperature has been at 80F. The current fish are very active feeders,I feed one pinch of flake food per day. Should I alter the temperature? How can I insure cories are adequately fed?

For your corries get some good quality sinking wafers or sinking pellets.

The other fish may nibble on the wafers some but this gets more food to the corries (don't over feed, and try not to under feed too much... about as many wafers as will be eaten in 30 minutes to an hour.

Coradoras Catfish don't need the higher temps.....You might try lowering it to near 76*F slowly.....The big thing is to keep it stedy.
I got off the porch and ran with the big dogs. Now I can't get back on the porch!
