I am new to this so bear with me. Starting June 16,2008 after the last of my old fish in my community tank died out my ,my albino corys really started to spawn. Well as of today I have made $73.00 bucks selling to my local shops. I had to set up another tank. I have around 150 babies at a variety of growth. What I cannot find out is there a problem about inbreeding since I have so many. So far the Mom and Pop are the only breeders. I move the older fry to the new tank after they are about an inch long. Should I go and purchase another pair just in case? Thanks, Debi-ann

I would think first generation breeding wouldn't be a problem but not knowing how inbred they already are unless you are trying for a certain characteristic I personally wouldn't inbreed any further than that.

I would try to separate them out by gender, if at all possible. That is what I do with my fry.
