I've been reading a lot about breeding corys, it would be awesome. How *cute* would those fry be? Apparently it really depends on the type. I've got Schwartz, which have never been documented to breed in captivity :(. On the other hand there are corys that will happily and easily breed. Perhaps I will post another topic on breeding corys and get Coryologist to reply, he's bred like 300 different kinds of them or something crazy like that :P

One thing I have heard that helps is to simulate drought and then rain, as apparently that's what would encourage them to breed in the wild.

but once they lay the eggs do you have to move them or move the parents away from them?
