Talking My cory laid eggs!!

Cory's had eggs and I'm super excited!! They laid them everywhere 2 days ago! The only ones that survived so far are the ones that we're strategically placed in front of the current of the filter. Such smart fishies! I have no clue who had them, but I'm stoked!! How long until they hatch? what do I need to do to keep them alive?? aaahhhh soooo excited!!

How fun is that? No clue on how long they'll take to hatch but I hope they make it.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

My cory eggs took about 3 days to hatch. They'll be eaten quickly in the community tank, so i put the eggs in a floating hatchery/basket thing and fed them algae, infusoria and crushed adult food after hatching. I managed to raised 3 out of about 10 eggs i saved and put them i my main tank when about 3/4" long

I'd move the eggs myself - the fry will get eaten otherwise. I had panda corys and the eggs are really tough and can be picked off by hand, or scraped off with a razor blade from the glass. You might be able to see the dark spots of the eyes through the egg shell if they're fertilised.

Also I heard, because I hope to have baby Pineapple Swordtails, not to put the eggs/fry in a NET type hatchery, but hard plastic instead, because the fish in the tank will try to eat them thru the netting. Just an FYI.
..... waiting patiently.......not! (Hope you own a camera)

Uh oh, all I have ATM is a mesh one, would that be better than nothing? So, is there a lot of changes that occur with the eggs themselves from the time their laid to the time they hatch? I haven't noticed any little black spots in the eggs, but their so tiny that it'd be hard for me to notice. I also haven't looked super close though.
