Unexpected Cory fry
I discovered dozens of little white eggs in my cory/oto tank about a week or so ago. The cories ate what seemed like all of the eggs, so I wasn't expecting much. I came home from work today and noticed that there was another several dozen eggs on the glass/plants/filter. As I was counting eggs, a movement caught my eye, and much to my surprise, I have fry! There must have been eggs hidden somewhere else that the parents didn't munch on.
My question is, what do I feed the fry? Do I need to separate them from their parents?
(This is a repost. I realized that I previously posted in the wrong section.)

Well you're probably going to need to feed the fish 'infusoria', which is a microscopic food...
You can also use one of the many liquid fry foods.
I've even heard of people introducing snails to their tank as a way to 'innoculate' their tank with infusoria.
Can we get pics?

I snapped a couple of pictures with my phone, but the fry weren't cooperating, so the photos came out horribly blurry. I'll try again tonight.
I can't wait to see them. I saw a few babies at the fish store today and they are so stinking cute.
