Hello all. I have a random question that I'm hoping someone could help me out with. I have three mostly grown emerald corydoras. I've definitely got at the very least one recognizable female that is definitely breeding. Last night I found the third clutch of eggs. The first didn't produce any fry. The second one hatched out on the walls, and a bit ago I saw four fry swimming around. I see them at least daily at this point, and they're starting to look like tiny corys. But the real question is... what are they eating? Between the Cory fry and the swordtail fry, I've had a couple batches of fry that have just randomly shown up one day. I'm not feeding the tank any fry specific formulas, just a tropical flake, hikari algae wafers for my pleco, hikari bottom feeder wafers for the catfish, and frozen brine shrimp once or twice a week, and the occasional vegetables. Does anyone have any idea what the Cory fry could be eating? I'm debating separating the eggs out into a nursery tank, but I'm also unsure of what I would feed them once their yolks are totally absorbed. Could they be eating the flakes?
