What Kind Of Eggs Are These?

JJBriant

Hello friends, so I have a tank with 10 neon tetras, 3 Bolivian rams, 4 albino corydoras, a Siamese algae eater, a nerite snail, and a snail that I’m not sure what it is. Maybe a pond snail or bladder snail. (It was a hitchhiker haha). I know the eggs aren’t from the nerite because I see her eggs all over all the time. These eggs are in a cluster and I’m just wondering who put them there haha.

What are your tank water conditions? My sons would love to breed their corys (and the older one would like to get into breeding rare plecos...strange kid...bad experiences (broken heaters, filters etc.) in the 1980's pretty much put me off plecos forever.) We have albino corys in our heated goldfish tank and the bronze variation in our livebearer tank.

I imagine the corys could be moved if you wanted babies, or vice versa another tank for the rams.

Temp is around 77. Ammonia and nitrite are 0. Nitrate is always 20 or below. I have lots of plants. Some java fern, dwarf hairgrass, amazon sword, Anubias, some kind of Val, and hornwort floating. I can upload a pic of my setup after work if you would like to see. And as far as breeding, I wasn’t planning on having any breeding going on haha. So whatever happens happens.

To keep the eggs alive you can move them to a fabric breeder net, preferably over a micro bubbler.

I think you should pet shame the rams for eating the eggs. lol

I currently have green Cory breeding in a 5.5... he eggs scrape off the glass very easily with a used gift card.. ( very durable and sticky eggs ) another good way to breed them in the same tank is the marina breeder boxes that u hook an airline to and it will continuously circulate fresh tank water in and has a waterfall going back to the main tank. Once they hatch I put a small piece of poly fill at the return to avoid any fry going back to the main tank...

Sure, sounds like fun, always enjoy looking at a nicely planted aquarium for new ideas. I know my boys will love to learn new tips and tricks for their new hobby. (Goodness knows they are hard-headed when it comes to listening to Mama and would rather either learn the hard way or from some other "expert". They are almost 14 and 16 years old and definitely in the stubborn teenager stage.)

Just be sure to have a backup plan if they do successfully start breeding... like having multiple tanks or friends family fish groups or pet stores to get credit once the fry are old enough. Good Luck!!

I do have a spare 10 gallon that I can use in case, but I feel like there are just so many fish that want to eat the eggs that I won’t have fry survive most likely
