I only have one pair of albino corys and the female spawned today. I didn't even know the young one was a male....anyway, this is the first spawn I've had so I need some serious advice on my nice surprise!
I read up a bit about cory breeding on some other websites just now. I'm not sure if any of the eggs are fertilised, as they are all the same creamy color so it's all good or all bad. They were not stuck on glass as described by others - all were on stuck to rocks on the bottom of the tank. I gently put them in a container I use to separate misbehaving fish because my tank has other fish and they were trying to eat the eggs.
The slats in the container allow for good air circulation, and are too small for the eggs to go through. My question is, will the fry be much skinnier than the eggs, and therefore fall through the cracks? *har har. *I'm also concerned that there might be too much circulation after they're hatched. The container is floating on top of the tank, and I have one regular filter and one airstone. At the moment the movement isn't enough to roll the non-sticky eggs around.
Another thing to worry about - I'm leaving in 12 days for a trip. Someone will feeding the fish, but I can't expect her to take too much special care of the fish other than feeding as instructed, so I need to make things as easy as possible by then. The corys are chasing each other around again... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_l_32.gif[/img]
Advice? Thanks in advance.
Here's a blurry pic. Clumps of eggs were stuck to some of the dark gravel, so I put the gravel in the container as well.
