I am so excited!!!!!

Alright! Today my cories layed eggs! Right in front of me!!!!!!!!!!!! Guys these are my first three fish I ever got!!!! And now theyre having babies! After all the hardships this tank went through to get established I finally get rewarded. Guys this is sooo amazing!!!!!!! I saw them scrambling around this morning wondering wow theyre crazy! I looked and i saw eggs on the glass...then i was watching them and they laid more eggs on my amazon sword! Ive been trying to induce breeding for a while by making the water i use in the wc be colder than usual! And lo and behold the next day!

The pic is on its side!

PM Angel. She just had her cories lay eggs. You need to remove them to a QT tank or they will get eaten rather quickly. CONGRATS!!

AWESOME!!! Same as mine....thou you may wanna pinch this leaf off and put it in a breeder net in the tank (as the cory themselves or other fish will snack down the eggs) and see what happens over the next 3+ days

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!

Alright, I have a breeder...a plastic one with vents that floats and stick to the side of the tank. I can't believe me and you both had eggs laid so close in time to each other!
