    I just found these eggs this morning. I'm hoping they're Cory eggs!!!

    I have multiple albino, false julii, and bronze/green cats... but I also have Cherry shrimp, and snails.

    What do you guys think? If they make it, I'll be looking to re-home these guys for free!

    1000% Cory-eggs.
    My guess is aeneus

    Yes, they are cory eggs. Have good luck raising cory fry!

    Its weird such a large group is intact, do you have any other egg layers in the group? (I mean they do look like cory eggs, just so many in one spot??)

    Congrats on the eggs, I'd agree with DoubleDutch that they're more than likely aenus.
    Just a cautionary word that newly hatched cory fry are minute & can get through the slits in the plastic breeder box, I'd suggest you stretch some tights (pants hose) around the box, it'll still let water through but will keep any fry inside :)

    Thanks a lot @Coradee. You're the best!

    No, just some male guppies and Platy.

    How many Corys?
  10. Lunnapr11Valued MemberMember

    The aeneus are only 2 :(
    I got them before I knew they need to be in larger groups, and I've been meaning get more... seems like I don't have to anymore! Hahaha!

    More aenues cories for free! Don't need to get more at your LFS.

    The albinos are probably also aeneus, and they will breed together as they are just varieties of the same species. How many albinos?

    That's awesome, thanks! I'm excitedly waiting for the fry!
  14. aquatickeeperFishlore VIPMember

    Good luck!

    16 successful hatchings! These buggers certainly are little, but sooo cute! Thanks for the pantyhose idea @Coradee

    They grow up fast . I have a bunch of bronze/albinos that hatched the 1st week in April. They're probably 20x larger than hatchlings and actually just look like little corys already.
