need advice QUICKLY!!!!!!
i have waited so long for my cories to breed. after so long they havent so i assumed i had all boys or all girls. however i have eggs on the side of the glass!!!!!!
what do i do? i have a tank set up waiting on molly fry which the eggs can go into but i need to know how to remove them safely QUICK!
Several weeks ago I observed my Sterbai breeding (no joy though as no observable eggs on the sides or bottom).
I found the following just in case of joy
jones - thanks. that was quite useful and ill take the advice given there about putting them in a breeding unit inside the tank theyre already in
i hope you start to have more luck with yours
My breeder tanks are strictly species tanks. I do have community tanks where fish are breeding all of the time. I just don't pay any attentions to those tanks. If you intend to raise the young cories, I would remove any other fish you have in that tank. Hopefully, you have an extra that is large enough. Once the young have hatched and are large enogh to move, I would move both the parents and the fry to new living quarters. A 10g tank is sufficient. I would also seperate them, so that the adults could continue their routine, and the fry could be raised.
Just another reason to get more tanks. lol
the 6 of them are in a 10g tank with a betta. i would move the betta to my other tank but he would get terrorised by my blind cave tetras. i bought a 30g tank last night but i have still to make the stand and cycle it but perhaps in time if they spawn again i could do as you suggested.
i have them in the breeding unti for now. hopefully some will hatch and i will try and raise them in the breeding unit until they are swimming where they can go in the 3g with the molly fry when it finishes cycling and i add the molly fry anyway. (i dont think the molly fry would eat the cory fry would they?)
thanks for the advice
sorry i meant to add:
i was as careful as possible when moving them but i still worry that they were damaged. if they do hatch, when should i expect to see some babies? they were laid last night
It's normally around 3 - 5 days. Good luck Julie, I hope you have success with them:)
i hope so too :)
