    Hi

    This is the first time I've noticed a cory lay eggs in my aquarium, and the eggs look different to the pictures I've seen online.

    The eggs are white, not orange, and they have tiny black dots on the outside rather than in the centre? Are they possibly part-hatched already or is there something else going on?

    Any advice would be much appreciated!

    I don't know about orange eggs, but with most fish if they're fertilized they will be mostly clear. As for the black dots on the outside I can't help

    Hello Rach...

    The white eggs haven't been fertilized. I have several tanks with Corydoras and the fertilized eggs will turn an amber color. If other fish don't get to them, (they're very nutritious) they should hatch in roughly three days.

    Ah well, I'm glad they won't go to waste!

    Guess the black dots on the outside are a mystery. I have taken a few aside to see what happens (if anything).

    Thanks both :)
