    Hi, does anyone have experience in breeding cories? I currently have 5 sterbai. How do I even tell their sex apart?

    Many thanks
    Cheers

    I was about to post my today photos. One of them is the FAT one(Pic 41). That's the female.[]

    If you know how they breed you know which female. You still can see the stomach quite big.(Pic 40)

    thanks for the article. but it said to breed them in a separate tank. i don't have a separate tank. actually was thinking of breeding them in my community tank. use the same method??? anyone has succeeded in breeding them in community tank? will the other fish eat the eggs?[:]

    99% chance the other fish will eat every egg available.

    "99% chance the other fish will eat every egg available."

    That's true. Almost all my eggs either get damaged or eaten up.
    In my community tank, so far only 1 fry survived from each bacth of eggs laid to adult.

    I tell you what take the Trilineatus Cory eggs out ...

    1. The Ghost shrimp cut the eggs that stick on glass

    2. The Sterbai, Similis and Panda are simply too good at smelling out the eggs under the leaves.

    3. The Parents either smash them with a single bite most likely accidental as they keep on probing for space to stick for new egg or they probably thought is not theirs. So far I did not see them eat the eggs yet.

    4. The congo tetra simply "dissolve' them into their mouth with a bite especially those eggs place highup in the aquarium.

    To increase dramtically chances of survival, be on standby to pickup the eggs after 15mins max. from the community tank.
    For frys to survive they need hiding spaces also.

    Sooner or later you will complain too many frys like me ....

    Sell ! Come on man ...

    I were kept busy by some relocation stuffs ....
    Hopefully find some times and I will portion out some frys to you FREE. Self-Collect ...

    I am still thinking what to do with the adults too ....

    I also have 15 Sterbai ... Most likely will have to sell half of them to ease maintenance as I will be away for long... long... long... time.
