unexpected albino cory eggs..help

socks2009

I 'inherited' a tank 8 days ago, it had a mixture of tetras and two albino corys.

The water was horrible......utterly.
I had to change all the water apart from that used to house fish during clean.
I removed the numerous tetras to leave the corys and 5 diamond tetras 6 guppies and 1 male betta.

I got up yesterday and found masses of eggs all over the glass.

How difficult is it to rear these?
I have placed an amazon sword plant in with the hope of them laying on their.

what parameters do they need?
What food works well? I would love to give raising them ago.

I think most of the eggs will be eaten by the Tetras unless they are well hidden. The fry aren't too difficult to keep alive (I haven't lost one as far as I know).
I think a pH of 6.5-6.8 is ideal but not required, that range is best for breeding. Temperature - somewhere around 23-25C.

As for the food I feed mine catfish pellets, algae/sinking wafers and flake. The flake should be finely crushed for the fry though.

What cories do you have? Nice to see someone else on here from Leeds

Well I went to put some eggs in a breeding net and they had eaten them all. Lots of big flat leaved plants in their now, so hopefully next time I will get to them before they are eaten!
I have two albino corys in this tank, and two peppered in my 200l (waiting to get some more just don't like adding too many at once)
