Byron, once the cories show spawning behavior can I move them to the tank the fry will be raised in?
Once they are like 1 inch-ish can be go to the ten gallon?
I wouldn't move them unless you see signs of spawning. Moving corys is highly stressful, they do not like it. The spawning tank should have lots of plants for cover. The corys will lay the eggs individually on a surface, which can be plant leaves, tank glass, filter tubes, wood...whatever strikes the female's fancy.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
