i have never actually bred corys myself but i have heard a few storys. it doesnt sound too hard because most people get eggs when they arent even trying to breed. like with any fish it helps to vary their diet. and most people say that you should try to stimulate drought and then rain. this is the time that they would breed in the wild. some people say to do this you should stop doing water changes for a bit and then start doing them frequently. others say to stop changing the water and take some out of the tank. then after a while refill the tank and do water changes as usuall. (if i have any info mixed up please correct me.)

hehe crazy4fish, just like my cories lol:D

jackblack1112, my cories randomnly breed like crazy4fish said so im not much help, but ive read that putting in slightly colder water then your tank water (not any drastic temperature changes) when doing water changes can also help with the breeding process. Ive also read that having a sprinkler system that you attach to your filter can sometimes help.
some cories are also easier to breed then others. my cories were bronze cories and they are quite easy to breed (well from what ive heard anyway lol)
good luck :D
the fry are gourgeous lol

could you possibly post the pics again? this time make sure that you uncheck the box under where you write the text that says "Dissable BBC Code" all we can see in your last post is the file your pic is in.
