Bronze cory spawn too much?


So I have a trio of cories that I got from a coworker of mine who got them less than a year ago, they were not keep under the best conditions. But i took them anyway and added them to a 10g that I just recently put some shrimp in anyways and on to the question.
They spawn all the time after about a month ago they spawned for the first time and now they spawn almost every week is this bad? I read that water changes can trigger a spawn which i do bi-weekly but there not cold water changes, I dont feed them that much but every week they spawn will this wear out the female? (she has laid eggs at least 4 seperate times that i can tell maybe more...)

My emeralds and sterbai do the same thing. They spawn like craaaazy. I do weekly/bi-weekly WC's and no matter what the water from the faucet is always colder than the tank water due to the fact it's summer. I think even slight drops in temperature can trigger them to spawn. When the heatwave subsided for a couple days last week my water temps dropped about 3-4 degrees and my emeralds spawned. You might want to feed them more protein, but other than that I'd say they are fine.

Yup, just make sure you're feeding them well.

They often go through periods with lots of spawning activity and then stop, then start up again... it's natural.

It may be bad in the sense that you're going to have a bunch of baby cories swimming around that you could probably sell for a few bucks each.
