Surprise spawn

Hello! I've had 2 pepper corys just over a year and 3 Venezuelan corys for about 9 months. They've been in a temp 10 gal until I set up my 29gal and today I saw they spawned for the 1st time. I have never had cory eggs before. I do have a breeder box. Any advice on how to proceed is much appreciated!

congrats. thats a lot of eggs! the eggs on the docoration look fungused. dont put those with the other ones. be sure to use methyline blue or maybe a little bit of hydrogen peroxide to keep the others from fungusing. typically people use separate containers with the eggs so you can keep the chemicals contained.

Ah, those are on the glass and a little out of focus, not fuzzy. Should I put them all in my breeder box? They're also in a 10 gal, which I know is too small for my guys. I have 1 empty tank 29 g and seeded sponge filters. How long do I have before eggs hatch?

when my corys first got busy I followed Coradee 's great thread on raising cory fry Raising cory fry | Corydoras Forum | 204003 I was able to successfully hatch lots of eggs while following her very good advice.

they will hatch in a few days or so, reading coradee's thread will help you more than I can.
