    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?

    But in advance think about the possibility getting rid of the fry afterwards.

    why get rid of them?

    Agreed, often the most prolific ones are the ones hardest to find homes for.

    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 all

    If you've enough space for 100+ you don't have to.
  6. blue velvet keeperWell Known MemberMember

    oh wow

    i don't know are there any that are easy to breed that don't produce 100s of eggs at a time?

    I’m currently raising 25 green Cory fry in a hang on Marina breeder box. . If you don’t want to house 100 or so of them then only scrape some of the eggs off the glass and plants.

    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.

    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 again

    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.

    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.
