Peppered Corys are spawning

    This is the second time i have caught my peppered corys in the act of spawning. Unable to collect any eggs. My cory seem to want to drop them in the java moss that is covering the bottom of my tank rather then sticking them to the aquarium glass, rocks or plant leaves.

    here are pictures of the male and female peppered corys.

    a couple of picture of the two corys in the act of spawning (in the third picture you can see the female holding eggs in her pelvic fins)

    and finally a picture of them spawning under my Female Opaline Gourami.

    I can just picture the Gourami saying, get a room or If i can't get my feeler between the two of you, you are dancing way to close together.

    lol love your interpretation of what the gourami's saying, very appropriate!
    Next time you think they might be about to spawn pop in a spawning mop, they may choose that instead of the moss.
    The only moss in my tanks is higher up for the shrimp so I use a mop made of that fine artificial fern & can either pick the eggs off or just remove the whole thing.
