So I have a few Peppered Cory in my 55 gallon tank. They recently decided to mate and scattered eggs yesterday. My intentions weren't to breed and I do not have a hospital tank. Now I typically do 30% water changes every Sunday on the tank, however my Mommy cory decided to leave some eggs on the side glass barely an inch from the top. So my question is...should I delay the water change till the eggs hatch or are they going to be okay out of the water for a little bit? I have a Pleco in there who drops a bioload like no other. haha.
Surprisingly the Pleco hasn't either found the stash of eggs or isn't interested because I have heard from various sources they will make a meal of it!
