So I'm sitting here next to my 55 Amazon community -- 6 glow lights, 6 Black neons, 8 Diamond tetras, 5 flame tetras, 2 high fined black skirts, 1 three lined cory, 4 adult and 10 juvenile Sterbas Cories, a male and a female Bristlenosed Pleco, a Clown Pleco, a dozen or so amano shrimp, and 5 Sex Manic Albino Bronze Cories, 3 males and 2 females, who have spattered eggs on my Java Fern Tree on the glass in front of it, on a giant sag leaf, and on the glass behind.
My apologies who go out of their way to get their cories to breed. Mine do it unasked.
However, when my Sterbas bred, they were in a tank with a large pebble substrate, and the Fry could get down in there and hide. These guys have no such luck.
So the questions:
How to I keep my eggs from getting all eaten? Should I remove them to a New, Clean, Bare Tank? With a power filter with a sponge on the intake guard? Do they need current? Add Melafix or Pimafix or both to the water to inhibit fungus? It'll be easy enough to get the leaves with the eggs, but how to get the eggs off the glass? If there white, does that mean they are fertilized, or do I need to wait a bit? The cories are still in the process of breeding, should I wait until they're done?
OK, that's it for now. Please give me some advice and then I'll worry about how to handle fry when I think I might have some.
(Damnme! I'm getting all excited!!! Looks like the Sterbas may be getting set for another batch, what with all the fish porn going on around them.)
