Melini corydoras fry

Kimberley2ka

Just today I was searching around my tank from the outside, and noticed something move quickly but it was something small that I couldn’t see. I currently have 3 Cory fry that I can see/find and all are various ages. I have a very small fry that isn’t coloured up yet, one that is a bit bigger and has colour/just colluding up and one more that is a bit bigger than that one that is coloured up. But my question is, they are in my main tank...how do I go about cleaning it? These guys are so tiny! I wasn’t expecting to be a Gma! They obviously can grow in my main tank as there are various ages but anything special I need to do? I’ve attached pictures of all of them.

Really, you have to keep your eyes peeled! Also, anytime i have pretty new fry, when i do a water change, i don't focus on the substrate vac quite as much as just getting the old water out. The less i move the vac, the less chance i have of sucking up fry. At least thats my logic!

I have a problem with this too. I use a python but I use my highest magnifying glasses and keep with my nose to the glass and my other hand on the hose ready to kink and free the youngins.

Grab a pair of tights or stockings, put over the end of the gravel vac and only water with a bit of muck will escape into the bucket....but still keep an eye out for the mini Houdini's though cos they need no invite to mount an escape :)

I'm always afraid I'll squish babies if I put stockings on the end.
