    @DoubleDutch @Flowingfins @aliray @Lucy @Platylover @Coradee Junne can you guys tell me what I should do to keep these eggs safe? [​IMG]
    Can I put them in my 10g? My 10 doesn't have any predators:). And how do I remove the eggs without killing them? Also how long will it take for them to hatch? And how do I know if they are fertilized?[​IMG]

    I'm sorry I can't help as mine laid eggs in a cave and I never even knew they were there until the little ones came out.

    Congratulations and hope someone can help you :)

    lol yea! :), but here's the problem. i need to get them out of the 60gal because its full of fry killers;). Should i acclimate them into the 10gal since that tank has no predators?doesn't it only take a day for the cory to hatch out of their sack? then they eat the egg yolk for a few days?:)

    As long as the water parameters in the 10 gallon are the same or close to the spawning tank then no need to acclimatise the eggs

    Depending on temperature they should hatch in 3-5 days

    At that temp they'll probably hatch in around 3 days
