They Did It Again!

Well my Peppered Cories have been busy lol.
I saved about 30 this time and only lost about 10. I'm going to move them into a breeder net in my grow out tank in just a little bit. I only put them in here with my other fry to be quick and stay on top of catching them before somebody made a meal of them.
Will changing tanks affect them at all? I also want to move my already hatched fry to the grow out tank. They have been in the parent tank for about 5 days. When is it safe to acclimatise them?

Are the tanks different temperatures, ph or hardness?

I don't have a kit for hardness. There is probably a slight difference tho. I use water from my tap which is about 8.0 ph. The tank they are in now has a peice of driftwood and keeps the ph about 7.8. The tank I would move them to does not have driftwood. Other than that I keep everything else the exact same.

Since they have very similar parameters I think it would be safe to acclimitize them soon

What about the eggs? They are in the same container with my fry and I want to move them to a bigger breeder net in my grow out tank BEFORE they hatch. That won't bother the eggs will it?

Nope as long as you don't keep the eggs out of the water too long. Was waiting for you to mention me

You are right I should've... that's my bad.
I've got lots of pepper babies now!
I can't seem to figure out why my green or albino won't breed tho... There is more of them and quite a few of my mommas are looking super fat with eggs lol.

Cuteeeeeee! The females that won't breed are likely just waiting until they are fully loaded with eggs. Just keep feeding them! You shall get them soon.

They look pretty swollen. Really about twice the size my peppered momma was both times she bred....hmm.

Yes, give them a few days. If nothing happens contact me. When mine got that big, the males started to try and "t" and that is when eggs started getting laid.

Well the males have already been trying. The day my peppered cories laid again there were numerous males that tried to mate with both of them. And one of them went around and cleaned/prepared the glass and other surfaces for well over an hr so I thought she was going to, but she never did. She just kinda stopped.

Awesom. I'm more than happy with being patient. I'm just kind of a paranoid person that worries the worst. So I was thinking that there was something wrong or that I was doing something wrong...

How is it going? I finally have a system where I do water changes 3-4 water changes a day along with food. No deaths in a week! May try it

Yes. That's exactly how I do it. Morning, noon, and lights out. Before lights out I feed them a little less than normal since I'm about to get to bed too and I won't do another change until morning. By morning tho there isn't a crumb left lol.
So this is the original 7 a week old today.
When should I be able to acclimatise them to the grow out tank? (I need to get a sponge filter first lol).

And this is my newest batch right after I moved them into the breeder net in my grow out tank.(Currently holding bunches and bunches of baby mystery snails lol.)
From this batch I started out with 28 and have only lost 4 to fungus. If they stay true to the same schedule as the first 7 they should start hatching ANY TIME now.
