Greetings. This is considered "prespawning" behavior and does not mean that spawning is imminent. Have you sexed the fish to assure you have both sexes? Although it is hard to tell from the photo, I do not see any fish that are loaded with roe. Have the fish been conditioned at all? Corys are playful by nature and will cruise one another. There's no way of knowing if it is going to lead to spawning behavior, until you wake up to eggs. I hope you are lucky enough to do so, soon. Good luck. - Frank

I keep approximately 95 species of Corys and have spawned 61.
