    Debris Amongst The Eggs

    I don’t know how to do that stuff ha ha I’m not very techy. But I’ll post pics when I have it up. Saw my Male Cory chasing my female today, she wasn’t receptive yet, but I see he’s eager to get started again lol so hopefully I’ll have more eggs soon enough to try again with ☺️ My albino female...

    Debris Amongst The Eggs

    I think I found a solution look what I found on eBay!!! The only thing I’d have to do is put some tights over the water vent that goes back into the tank, but other wise this is fabulous as it comes with a filter and brings the water in/out from the tank so the water is the right temp and the...

    Debris Amongst The Eggs

    I said next time we should glue the suction cups on the back with gorilla glue so there’s no holes in the back as I think that’s where they’re getting out. But isn’t there a safe option like the picture? Will they fit through do you think? All I have is the net one in the other pic. I want to...

    Debris Amongst The Eggs

    I started with 5 and have 1 left the thing is they didn’t die they disappeared!!! There must be holes big enough for them to escape out of into the aquarium (lots of fish to eat them in there) so I definitely need to rethink my next hatchery and a safe escape free place to grow them a bit...

    Debris Amongst The Eggs

    They hatched! I have 5 the rest of the eggs stayed white. They’re in a food tub with only holes up top for now. How many days is it that you don’t feed them 3? Thank you. I accidentally did suck one up using the medicine syringe so I put it back in. I don’t know if I’ll end up with any as I...

    Debris Amongst The Eggs

    Yes it is, it’s tank water I put it there, it’s just a good container with holes in. Not an actual proper hatchery so there’s no getting it out st the bottom as it’s a solid tub. I had 5 fry hatch last night/this morning Ok that’s good then, 5 hatched last night or early this morning. I tried...

    Debris Amongst The Eggs

    help! I’m sure I saw a wriggler or two from my Cory eggs (only on super zoom with my phone!!! ) but I also see loads of debris from the water how do I remove it without sucking up the microscopic wrigglers? Picture is an egg on super zoom with movement inside and all the dirt on zoom too

    Are These Corydoras Eggs Viable

    They’re spixi snails, supposed to be great at eating hydra and not so easy to over breed. Well THAT was a lie as I have 4 batches of spixi eggs on my plants and back wall of my tank and 2 batches I threw into my bigger community tank that the fish see and nibble now and then but some will still...

    Are These Corydoras Eggs Viable

    Are These Corydoras Eggs Viable

    I already have them in a little box. I removed them off the glass on Tuesday when they where laid as the gourami was trying to eat them. I’ll put them in the shrimp tank if they hatch and survive. Hope for the best. omg they’re so cute!! Are you saying I put the eggs into the shrimp tank??? I...

    Corys Breeding

    I’ve been keeping an eye on the plecs for bristles, the brown one has a tiny little one or two so small they’re barely visible. I’ve had the albino a lot longer and that has the same amount of bristles on the face. 2 tiny what look like raise eye brows not bristles lol. . I’ve had the albino one...

    Are These Corydoras Eggs Viable

    Ha ha yes corys are gorgeous. I only have 3 one albino who I adore she is super active and beautiful and 2 peppers who are the parents of these eggs, but my tank is stocked I’ve no room for more, so they’ll all go into my new 5ft by 2 by 2 tank project I’ll have up n cycled by the end of the...

    Are These Corydoras Eggs Viable

    I did scrape them off and put them in that make shift food container with holes around the top for water flow and an air stone running in the large tank around it. I’ve actually not got a clue where to go if/after they hatch into that box. Kinda just going along with it for now to see if they...

    Are These Corydoras Eggs Viable

    are any of my corys eggs viable? Quite a few are beige but some are still white. But are the beige looking promising?

    Corys Breeding

    Yes both of mine where tiny when I got them, but my albino was the smallest. They don’t like each other and the brown plec chases the albino off of certain places like the cave or heater or even just chases it for no obvious reason. Not often but I’ve seen it a few times. How many plecs could I...

    Corys Breeding

    Yeah I do one dwarf blue cobalt Male gourami. He’s the only one that had a go at getting one egg off the glass. The others seemed oblivious as to anything going on ha ha. There’s a few eggs she laid on the back pane of glass behind the plants, so those he won’t reach. But he may have gotten the...

    Corys Breeding

    My gourami was following the two corys around the tank, he tried to get an egg off of the glass but didn’t succeed. The Male Cory started trying to stab the gourami with his spikes as he was chasing the female and she dropped a few eggs because the gourami was after her. I didn’t know plecs...

    Corys Breeding

    W these ones? I can them by the 4th I only I only have 2 small run fish shops by me. One sells a lot of package foods like flakes, pellets etc but I’ve only seen blood worm and daphnia live at the till. So I can order those tetra minitabs for now and try to get the others after I at least...

    Corys Breeding

    Right ok I may try and make a better version then. I need to buy another light weight tub as the others I have are only about 2 inch deep so no good. Let’s say they do hatch. What do i feed them after the egg yolk absorbs? I looked online and there was all egg foods etc which I have none of! I...

    Corys Breeding

    Oh darn, yes we constructed it with both on the back. Hopefully it’ll still work? I’ve added holes all around on every side with a hot knife. I suppose I’ll see how this goes. It’s tipping backwards because of the suction holder position tipping it. I’ve added more water and it goes back up...

    Corys Breeding

    Will this suffice? I’m having trouble keeping the front of the tub holes under water. But the side ones and back ones are submerged. How does this look? I’ve got aboyt 15 in there just incase lots die or don’t hatch. I’ve also left a lot on the side glass and back pane which is behind plants so...

    Corys Breeding

    This sounds more doable but what is a move over butter container? I’ve never heard of that. I’m UK so have different types here, is it a small shallow one or a large one? I can grab one at the shop and empty it out. Thanks for the help If I can sort this one I’ll do it.

    Corys Breeding

    no neither am I yet. I won’t have my 5ft up and cycled until Xmas. So can’t really cater to a lot more. My community is over stocked hence the 5 ft coming sooner than I planned next year, as I’d like a few more different ones too. But for now I can’t raise too many. I would give some to my...

    Corys Breeding

    Thank you very much I’ll read that now! It’s very exciting ha ha. I’ve only had that little one a cpl wks and I thought the bigger one was a Male ha ha ha shows how green I am with those type! I’d like to raise a few of them. So I’ll see if I can get them off and into a fry net without squashing...

    Corys Breeding

    i saw some tiny white eggs stuck on my community tank glass. Didn’t know what they where until I saw my corys acting weird, then I saw them mating and so far she has laid eggs on all 4 sides of the tank!!! They’re still going as well. The gourami has tried to eat a few but they’re stuck well...

    Eggs Or Legs?

    Perfect thanks richie I’ll do that today and use the thermal temp that gets the temp exact match for the water changes. I’ll check it with that to make sure it goes down to 22.5. Thanks again

    Eggs Or Legs?

    No none of mine have had any. You said to watch out for the saddle and mine where still probably too young. That was a while back. I look everyday at my reds and yellows as they’re my oldest ones. But still to identify any definite eggs in any... they all seem to be getting saddles though (well...

    Eggs Or Legs?

    I know rich she’s hard to see well in that tank you and I both have, the lighting in it is so bright! and shes a gorgeous bright yellow (my best coloured shrimp) so her colouring makes it hazy. I’ll see if I can get one of her tomorrow during the day and turn down the white light to see better...

    Eggs Or Legs?

    Ahhh darn it I thought they may just be my first babies lol. She seems quite sedate. Not moving around as much as the others. She’s camping out in the light on that plant a lot. My shrimp are still young maybe 3/4 mths at a guess. I don’t know exactly as I bought them as juveniles a month two...

    Eggs Or Legs?

    I’ve yet to have any of my shrimp have babies they’re either still too young or all A sexual lol. Has my yellow shrimp here got eggs or is that just legs I see (long sighted so it’s tough for me to make out) while I’m here, what’s the ideal temp for breeding/shrimp tank? I had mine at 24 but see...

    Green Patch On Shrimp

    Not sure due to my eye sight not being 20/20 but I think the brown dot in there with it maybe moving independently. It fell off when I put the shrimp in the little pot. So I think your right and it’s some kind of parasites... I’ve sent Rich a message as I know he’s great with shrimp stuff. It’s...

    Green Patch On Shrimp

    so I bought 5 tiny blue cherry’s to add to my shrimp tank. One has a green patch on its side. Are they eggs? She won’t stay still long enough for a good picture or get close enough to the front for me to take a better one. But I posted a few. What do you think? EDIT I got a closer pic just now...

    Spixi Laid Loads Of Eggs

    Yes I’ve left those first ones, then 2 days later another batch was laid! So I pulled that lot out and dropped it into my community tank. It sunk really fast though and only a cpl got pulled off by mollys. The others and on the gravel. I’ll get them with the siphon next clean. Yesterday low and...

    Spixi Laid Loads Of Eggs

    I’m not sure on gallons as I’m in UK but I guess it’s about 65L I have a fry net, so that’s a good idea! The thing is there’s A LOT of eggs and I’ve never sold anything through the post that’s living before lol so I’m not sure if I want to keep them or not. Not sure what to do with them right now
  45. ShellyB78

    Spixi Laid Loads Of Eggs

    Wouldn’t I need another tank to put them in? I only have a community and a shrimp tank that they’ve been laid in. I already have 6 rams horn , 3 spixi and a hundred pond snails breeding ridiculously which I remove and get rid of daily in there. Plus 2 ottos for the algae and a handful of juvi...

    Spixi Laid Loads Of Eggs

    ermmm ok so I have 3 spixi snails. When I ordered them it said they’re hard to breed as they’re not as prolific as other snails. I thought great! I have an infestation of pond snails as it is, I don’t want anymore. Then I just saw this..., ‍♀️ It’s still laying them now. Will my rams horn other...
