5 Gallon Tank Pepper corydoras breeding in 5.5 gal.

Ckline

I’ve had two 5.5 gallon tank setups on a stand for a year or so now and haven’t had anything in them besides snails in the planted tank, the last previous uses were for fry and snail grow out tanks. My friend thats been in the hobby for awhile was telling me i already have a good setup to start breeding corydora, and that if i do everything right they will breed in the 5.5 gallon tanks. I was kinda doubtful because I’ve already tried breeding cory in the 5.5 gal. Before, but didn’t have any luck. Probably because I wasn’t as motivated nor doing the right prompts to get them to spawn.
Within a week i have successfully got a group of peppered (paleatus) corydora to spawn in a 5.5 gallon tank, consisting of 1 female and 4 males. Doing everyday or two water changes and replacing with cooler water, and feeding lots of bloodworms.
Now I’ve been setting up my other tanks for more corydora breeding. Added a group of emeralds to my 10 gal. with 2 females and 5 males. And the 20 gal. on the top left is now cycling, hopefully planning to get a group of panda cory next.

There is no such word as Corydora. It is Corydoras, with an s on the end, both singular and plural.

Looks like an interesting setup for breeding. Good Luck.

IMO a 5 gallon is a bit small to be having corydoras in, let alone breeding them. Minimum tank size is a 10 gallon, but they do way better in a 20 gallon or larger.

I’m aware, this group came from my 75 to a 5.5 but they’ll be fine. I thought a 5 gal would be too small for housing and breeding corydoras as well, but if the fish eat, their happy, let alone spawning eggs in a 5 gal. I’m not concerned
