    Re: Corydoras Keepers

    I have quite a lot of small white balls stuck on the inflow pipe of my Eheim Pro 3 600 these few days.Are they eggs laid by the Corydoras?

    I used a toothbrush to dislodge the small white balls off the inlet pipe and they fell into the holes of my driftwood.My platies tried to eat them but it was too big for their mouths.

    Re: Corydoras Keepers

    Just saying a quick hi to everyone. I have recently took over my dad's old tank and thought I will continue his fishy passion. Decided to keep it simple to a freshwater community tank.
    Having posting here, its obvious that corydoras has just converted another supporter in me. haha

    Will be trying to upload some setup photos soon!

    Re: Corydoras Keepers

    I am curious how are they doing after 2 months. I got 4 sterbals and 7 habrosus ( 1 died right after I brought home ) recently. And they are really cute !

    Re: Corydoras Keepers

    Actually I have my C. sterbai in my planted tank. Most Cories have no issue with planted but need to provide some area for foraging.
    I would prefer long nose species in sand though.

    Re: Corydoras Keepers

    Hi guys,

    My pair of albino cory started to breed recently after keeping them more than 1 year... the first batch of eggs got around 50-80eggs... i left half of them in the tank and scoop the other half into a small plastic tank with a credit card (as see in youtube)...

    within 1-2 days those eggs in the tank were eaten up by pond snails and shrimps... and those in the small tank grew fungus... none survived...

    after less than 2 weeks... the female started to lay eggs again... this time lesser eggs... again i put half in the small tank but this time i add in some methylene blue to prevent fungus... as well as blast up the airstone... this time got less fungus but after 3 days i still dun see any hatching... as usual those in the tank were quickly eaten except for those eggs that is under the wave maker... i guess the current there is too strong for shrimps to get near...

    how can i increase the hatch rate of the eggs... am i doing it right using a credit card to scrape off the eggs?

    Re: Corydoras Keepers

    Likely those eggs are not fertile. Yet seen shrimp and snail will attack Cory eggs in all my successful hatching. Frys do get eaten by mid swimming fish easily.

    Stop using card to extract. Usually finger after an hour of laying to let it harden.

    Re: Corydoras Keepers

    thanks for answering...

    i read from somewhere that the eggs are usually fertilized before the female attached them on the glass... how to know whether the eggs are fertilized or not?

    Is there a better way to extract the eggs? I find that those eggs that i touched with fingers usually develop fungus first... despite i washed my hands thoroughly before handling them... i might be wrong though...

    Maybe next time when the female start spawning... i put her in a breeder box to lay eggs first... to minimize handling the eggs too much... just dun know whether the female will lay eggs if i enclose it in a small breeder box...

    Re: Corydoras Keepers

    They will mate but usually the first few spawns are bad especially inexperience ones. haha

    Let the egg harden, then roll them with your finger. If you find it hard to roll, wait longer. I have been doing this for ages.

    Alternatively,

    Your next problem maybe feeding the frys that only eat live food small enough for their mouth. Some people rather leave them in the main tank and you may see few survived. So no rolling needed. :P

    Re: Corydoras Keepers

    hahaa... noted... yah perhaps those eggs are unfertilized due to inexperience parents...

    Thanks for all the tips... will continue to monitor...

    Re: Corydoras Keepers

    Just an update...

    To my surprise... the smaller and more streamlined cory that i always thought is a male... turned out to be a female!!! I witness it holding the eggs at the hind fins and releasing it on the glass... and not long after that... the bigger and less streamlined cory which i always thought is a female came up to eat some of the eggs... So now i am unsure if both are females?

    So far after abt 5 spawns... non of the eggs hatched...

    Will 2 females spawn eggs? Is it that once the female reached maturity it will release eggs irregardless whether there are a male in the tank or not?

    Re: Corydoras Keepers

    Interesting. A check in the web seems such event may happens. I often have enough corydoras population size and mix ,so never really observe such. Most of my eggs are fertile.

    Re: Corydoras Keepers

    ok... confirmed the 2 cory are females... i saw the bigger cory releasing eggs today... so meaning all these eggs will not be fertilized... seems like these eggs are destined to be shrimps and snails food...

    sad...
