C.aeneus.blue velvet keeper said:what is the easyest most cost effective cory that I can breed? I have tried breeding pandas but have only got one egg so anyone that can help me here?
Agreed, often the most prolific ones are the ones hardest to find homes for.DoubleDutch said:C.aeneus.
But in advance think about the possibility getting rid of the fry afterwards.
Aeneus can lay several hundred eggs in one spawning, if a large number survive then you’re going to need a big tank to keep them allblue velvet keeper said:why get rid of them?
oh wowCoradee said:Agreed, often the most prolific ones are the ones hardest to find homes for.

I don't know are there any that are easy to breed that don't produce 100s of eggs at a time?DoubleDutch said:If you've enough space for 100+ you don't have to.
yeah I had just the pandas in there and I woke up to get ready for school at 6:00 am and there was a single cory egg then I freaked out and tried to put it somewhere else then I broke it. then I was trying to breed them but I am thinking of trying againCoradee said:Again, usually the easiest to breed are the most prolific.
You say you only got one egg from the pandas, did you have other fish in the tank that could have eaten the rest? corys also will eat their own eggs so for best results the adults should be removed after spawning if your goal is to get good numbers of eggs & fry.
To be honest breeding them is fun.blue velvet keeper said:oh wow

ok I might donate to the MASDoubleDutch said:To be honest breeding them is fun.
You can always try with C.aeneus and simply not save all the eggs they lay or be sure you can sell the youngsters to an LFS or so.
if I do get any I will probobly do thatFanatic said:I agree with aeneus being the easiest cory to breed, mine used to breed all the time, but some of them died off in some accidents a while back, now I think I am left with only one or two females, most of them in the herd are males.
I have the aeneus albino and aeneus bronze mixed together.
