Forgot to add-remove all the carbon from your filter media when you use the methylene blue!

I did removed the filter,I added 2 more teaspoons of it. The eggs already got fungus(clear fuzzy stuffs) on them. Is it too late to add more to the tank?

Are they ALL ate up with fungus? If not,I would. You may have discovered them too late,or they weren't fertilized. It's up to your discretion.

When mine spawned I watched them and made sure the males came up behind the female and fertilized them before I messed with them,and then only a few got fungus. About 90% hatched for me but I was right on top of them spawning. I know you probably can't sit there all day and watch the fish. lol After a few tries you'll get the eye for what's what.

What would the fungus do to the eggs? I think the eggs on the mag float probably were not fertilized by the males. The eggs were on the mag float upside down.

It just happen. I didn't even know corys are egg layers until I saw the eggs. I always have live bearers in the tank. Like guppies, platies.

I think I'm done with the eggs. The eggs probably weren't fertilized by the male cory. They are all cover with fungus. I'm going to do the water change tomorrow.

you can put the carbon back in the filter it will help remove some of the medicine and continue doing water changes.
But by saying you removed the filter. did you turn it off or jsut take our the carbon pad.
