    Cory Eggs Gone

    We recently noticed Cory eggs on our tank wall and believe our bronze and albino to be the culprit. But the next morning the eggs were all gone. I read that the parents will eat the eggs. Is there a way to prevent this without having to put parents in a breeder and take them out after they spawn?
