Unhappy I have had it with these Cory's & thier eggs

Ok, someone needs to either give me a good workable advise or talk to my C. aeneus (Bronze)....

They lay eggs ALL THE TIME since I introduced them in the 55g which is great right, since I'd appreciate some fry...

The deal is while they lay eggs with each weather swing their timing is awful. All I can find in the AM's when I get up is the spots eggs used to be/ chewed up eggs; which I know its the Albino Tiger Barbs getting after them the second they put the eggs there.

That said taking the Cory's out is not a option unless I totally disassemble the planted tank to catch them, which I don't wanna do neither.

Soooo really what are my options? Night shift & flash light with the next storm?

Yes, and catch the eggs military style, like I do. Swoop in when the Albino Barbs least expect it

I don't know. I woke up again this morning to the remains of eggs all over my glass. If I was to try something, I'd probably grab like a straight edge razor and get them...but that'd be risky in crushing the eggs. And I know if I did that, it would make the puffers wanna go and see what's up. My only suggestion is to try it sneak attack in the middle of the night...though that's a gamble in its own right.

Have you tried putting something easy to take out.. in the tank and watch for them to lay then transfer the sheets of whatever you use to a prepared nursery tank. Just getting back into fish after several years away from the hobby. Creekperson
