Sorry!

A floating plastic, or net but I think plastic is better, unit that you put in the tank. It has tiny slits or holes in it and you just sit it in the top of the tank so it's all the same water and all the same bacteria form the filter going into it. There isn't as much circulation in them obviously so every day just lift it half out the water and back in, slowly!!!!, and that will make sure the water is being changed.

I suppose a net would do for tonight but get a breeder unit tomorrow. They only cost a couple of pounds.

My link explains pretty much everything. Mine hatched in 3 days but it can vary.

The reason, BTW, I recommended a plastic unit rather than net is so that fish can't try to suck the eggs/babies through the net. Even if they don't actually get them they could stll damage them.

The breeder unti will be fine for a few weeks. Have you not recently set up a 10g? Wait until it cycles and put them in there - don't, whatever you do, be impatient and put them in early. Hold off getting the other fish for a while while the cories are still in it.

sounds good.do the eggs need to be fertelised or do they just lay eggs and hatch?

They do need to be fertalised but they are fertaliseed before being laid. Females can still lay eggs even if they're not fertile unfortunately.

alright fortunately i picked up a breeder net today.i transported the eggs into it.i doubt that they will live because i might have moved them too fast. now that i know that my cories will breed i can look foreward to another couple of babies,but i dont know if they will do this more than once.if the eggs do survive they will likely be multiple genders so if they want they can breed.
