I woke up this morning to cory eggs on the glass of the tank. The pleco was suctioned on the glass and I could see eggs in its mouth, so I don't know how many got eaten. The cory spawned off and on for several hours and I collected most of the eggs and attached them to water canopy plants, and placed them in a breeder net near the filtration system. I got some photos, not all are great quality, but I am working on how to take better pictures. I hope you guys enjoy them. Cross fingers for babies! This time I am going to hope they hatch and this time in the safer haven of the breeder net. We'll see.
There is a blurry pic, but if you look closely, you can see the cory in their spawning embrace. Also interesting in the photos with the cory egg on my finger - those things are really sticky! I turned off the filter to remove eggs from the intake. The pleco has been known to root around hard enough to knock the intake off getting to eggs. On the glass I used a razor blade to gently remove the eggs.
Nope. They checked it out, but never laid eggs on it. I had put some eggs in the net, so maybe they knew other eggs were there? They also reused the areas of the glass that I had harvested eggs from and put in the net.
