    Just watched a cory cat lay her eggs, it was kinda neat.

    Hello king...

    You'll have to keep the other fish and snails too, from having them for lunch. Cory eggs are very nutritious. I get maybe one in 10 to hatch. The others in the tank take the rest.

    Kingguppy9000 how were you able to successfully breed your corys? Photos of the eggs? Lol

    If you want to try and raise the Cory eggs I'd move them to either their own tank or a floating Container with an air stone. My corys are laying their eggs as I type and my pearl gourami is eating them as soon as their done laying them.

    I already to put the plants in a baby cage in my nursery tank. I didn't do anything, I've had them for a year or so, maybe more. I had to grey ones, and it was ok. Then last week I got 5 more albino small ones, then yesterday I was just chilling being baked, and I saw them doing that strange belly rub thing. Wasn't sure if she was fat or pregbant, but now I know.

    If any hatch I wonder how they will look, they are two separate types of cory cats.

    You can see a few eggs on the top leaf 1466000445171.jpg
    Here is the daddy. 1466000461289.jpg
    And here is the momma.

    As for the babies I just dumped them into the current baby sword tail tank. Bring the counts up to 7 separate batch of babies I'm holding. 1466000692108.jpg1466000696768.jpg
    The first batch is getting so big I need to transfer them to their own larger tank today or tommorow.

    It looks like only one of the eggs is ok, one egg you can see a thing inside, the others are all cloudy.

    Here is the first half of the biggest babies, if they all survive the new tank I'll dump the other half in a few days. 1466096057471.jpg1466096063692.jpg

    Disregard the two massive rocks, that cedar tree won't sink to save the world.
