cory eggs

my corys just laid some eggs around my tank and I was wondering how long it will take for them to hatch and if they need special food.

They usually take 4-5 days to incubate if they are the albino bronze cory. The fry swim around less than a week later. Fry grow quickly and soon develop a taste for dried foods.

so you think they will do fine in a 10gal cycled tank without fry food? I have just started up my brine shrimp culture again to be sure (it's all I have) there are around 4 dozen eggs and I plan on keep them alive until I can sell them or something (no room for more than a couple here)

Has anyone here bred corydoras? I just discoverd what I think are cory fry but I am not sure. they look like this

and they are a little less than a mm long. I would be more sure but it looks like my tank has just had its first case of planeria. I'm not sure if those are fry or if they are some other parasite... do cory catfish fry stay on the glass near their eggs until they learn to swim?

Looks like you have wigglers my dear Hope those brine shrimp are almost ready
usually 3-4 days after eggs are laid they will hatch(wigglers), then 3-4 days later they will be free swimming, at the free swimming stage they will start to eat. brine shrimp are a good first food because they are so tiny. They will also graze on shrimp pellets and algae wafers. Because they eat all the time its easy for the water to get fouled. You know what goes in always comes out and then there's excess food. So 50% water changes each day are very important. Good luck! cory fry are so cute!
