Emerald Cories Spawning again :)


My emerald cories are spawning again But, this time I learned to put the eggs in a net so they don't eat them! Would the first bites from hikari work for the eggs if they hatch?

They have the egg sack attached for about two days after they hatch. No need to feed them until day 3. Micro worms are best but whatever they will take as long as its high quality is fine.

Look into some brine shrimp eggs as well and hatch them yourself! It's pretty fun and your cories will grow really fast on them. Just make sure to get a BBS net so you can wash off the saltwater. You can also feed them decapsulated eggs.

02/05/2013's Bucket Test ph 7.3-7.4 @2:23pm (more blue than green)
Tank ph 6.6-6.4 (more green than blue) Nitrite 0 Nitrate 0

Is it still too much of a gap in ph ? It started out in the bucket at 8.4-8.8.

Cory cats where my first fish I bred. They are so cute. I still have some of my babies.

Congrats raising the fry is the hard part. I learned the trick to get them to spawn but keeping fry alive was another story.

Good luck have fun watching them grown.

Thanks Microworms are on the way and I am going to get a breeder box net to keep them in the main tank and not get eaten. I also am going to get the blue antifungal meds to put in the water.

Don't medicate. Just do extra WC. Water changes are what will help more then anything.

Mine were spawning today also, but eating the eggs as fast as they lay them. I did get one and put it in a crevice in the driftwood, who knows, it might make it.
