You think it is extra light they are getting with the longer days or their tanks warming up?

Most likely atmospheric pressure or soemthing. It's something we can't manipulate easily.

Mine too. And the tanks are in the basement with the lights on a timer. My cories don't care what time of year it is. Every 7-10 days there's eggs splattered everywhere. I've got about 30 sterbai in my nursery tank right now.
