Zuchinni, lettuce, spinach. You can buy aquarium clips for leaves of lettuce. I'm not sure how much they will like the lettuce but most bottom feeders enjoy zucchini.

Not to say jweb is wrong but personally I used to blanch zuccini for my otocinculus, and corys were in the tank but never went for it.

One of my favorite fish foods that almost all fish I have seem to enjoy is hikari micro wafers. Picture a big algae wafter, the size of a poppy seed. Hikari makes good stuff. I also buy frozen bloodworms made by them. Corys will eat just about any regular fish food though. If it reaches the bottom its fair game. Common fish flakes are just fine..

All my fish go nuts over bloodworms though.

I don't know too much about corydoras but I'd say flakes would be OK in the meantime. Look up corydora catfish on yahoo or google. That's what I'd do.
