I feel bad for my corydora :(
well its been bullied by 3 neon tetras, and then i just added someCOLD water to the tank. and my cory doesnt have anyone to mate with :( but in about a week im gonna buy a good 50000000000000000 corydoras (sarcasm) so i can breed them, maybe a good 6 (i have 1 now and i have a 55 so its loads and loads of room and i plan on putting a cave n there :) but then idk what to do with the rest of it cause its big) but my poor corydora cant mate :(. well atleast all my fish are enjoying the cold water (not freezing for there temp.) cause it was just about to hit 90 and i dropped it to the 84-86 range :).

you feel bad for your corydora? my beta is nearly 5 years old and he hasnt got to mate with anyone! i want to just give it a try before he passes away.

well its hard considering breeding corydoras is EXTREMELY easy. just do a cold water change, and they'll do there business. and my cory doesnt have anyone to do it with :(.

blueblue48 08-03-2007 12:57 PM

is it really that easy? :shock: i think i should get a cory tank now! i want them to breed. but ive heard its hard to tell a male from a female?

assualt911 08-03-2007 04:29 PM

yeah it is hard to tell, ask the people at the store, im just gonna buy a batch and see what happens.

all of this corydora mating talk makes me want to do that. i just setup my gourami tank and i rummaged around in my back fish room and found an old (DIRTY!) 10 with a heater some ornaments and a filter (i need to buy a hood) i was wondering if you could breed corydoras in a 10 gal?? (btw for some reason it had one of those little breeding nets? i think i used to try to breed mollies in there but anyways do i need the net or what?

assualt911 08-03-2007 06:29 PM

hmm idk if you need it, cause corydoras dont eat there babys atleast that i know of. 10 gallon is ine aslong as you dont have 30 of them, im putting just like 9 in my 55 gallon and i can hold like 50 of them or more.

They will eat their babies, but are more likely to eat their eggs.

Geez... the one time that my Fiance is more difficult than my fish tank. At least the fish don't nag.
