I'm thinking of buying baby brine shrimp for when they start to come out. I know I'm going to wait 4 to 5 days before I feed them after they hatch. Here's the plan. Moving to a 2 gallon tank, includes: 2 airstones, heater, almond leaves, bare bottom. Anything else you guys think I need? Gonna be posting everyday. Also got first bites.

Ok...so! I counted around 70 cory fry (was gonna call them sperm because that's what they look like haha) I took picutres and will upload them on here when I get on my phone. Got a video with the tail just wagging.

I'm so happy! I tried to get a close up and this is the best I could get. They are too small for my camera . So tomorrow morning I'll be feeding them baby brine shrimp and first bites!

Thinking if I should create a YouTube account to video

Think they like to be in groups?

There was another group like that in the other corner. Tried to take a picture of the whole cup but then they swam away.

So! I counted all of the fry. I got around 80 fry! So happy. They all still have egg sacs so I don't wanna feed them but it's been almost three days.

So frustrated! They won't eat anything I give them! They have very little egg sacs left so I tried first bites and baby brine shrimp. Nothing-,-. Anyone got any ideas? DoubleDutch

A mix of albinos and bronzes. also maybe a mix of emerald. Collected some eggs from emeralds. won't know until they start having color.

Dude this egg sac is two times the size of the Cory! The reason some of them are laying sideways was because last night I wasn't paying attention and dropped the air stone of some of the fry

Larval Corys do not have their adult color at birth, it has to grow into it. I highly recommend patience.

Yes I know. I'm just so excited for them. Can't wait to see which Cory is what. I have lots of patience

I really don't know what happened. I quickly just did a big water change and added more sink water (0,0,0) which didn't help, so then I added my 60 gallon tank water and they were fine. I have never had a problem with the water. It's what I put into my tanks. Weird
