To begin, I’ve owned Cories for many years. I’ve raised fry in the past, but I’ve only ever had one live to adulthood. (Who is actually the father of some of these babies!) I currently have 4 Bronze Cories and 4 Peppered Cories, with three females and one male in each group. I was planning on getting more Cories after I sold my very large group of Guppy Endler hybrids, but they solved that problem by deciding to spawn the very day after the Guplers went to their new home. They started to spawn Thursday evening and continued into the night, finally stopping Friday afternoon. The eggs started hatching Sunday evening, and the last eggs just hatched Monday night. There’s at least 20 babies, probably more. They’re a mix of Bronze and Peppered for sure since I saw both of them actively breeding, but it’s impossible to tell them apart right now. Spoiler: Fry Pictures! (I’m putting images in spoilers since they’re pretty large.) It’s hard for me to describe just how tiny these guys are, pictures really don’t do it justice. They’re probably a bit longer than a grain of rice, and only a few millimeters wide. Spoiler: Setup This is my current setup, it’s a breeder net with a piece of plastic fry grass weighed down by a pebble to provide some shelter options for the babies. There’s also an air stone I keep in there, but I take it out any time I want to take pictures. I don’t like the fact that the babies can hide underneath the plastic frame of the breeder, I’m worried they’ll get stuck. I don’t have any other options though, there’s not enough space between the tank and the lid to float a decently sized plastic container, and I don’t have any other tanks that I could use as a baby nursery. To anyone who’s raised Cory fry, how on earth do you keep things clean? I feel that a lot of my past attempts to raise these guys have failed from not keeping everything clean enough. I’ve been doing 10-15% water changes every day to keep the water quality up, but stuff still manages to sneak into the breeder net. I’ve been using a medicine dropper to very carefully clean out debris, but it is not easy. It’s not too bad now, but I know it will get exponentially more difficult once I start feeding them. I’m wondering if converting the air stone into a mini sponge filter might work. Anyway, I’ll be updating this thread all the time with my progress and plenty of photos! I’ll leave this post with a picture of a bunch of them peeking out at me during a water change. Spoiler: Excuse me mister, what are you doing?
