Thanks. They haven't bred again yet, but it's been very hot here. The weather is meant to break and cool down tomorrow so I might do a water change tonight and see if the cooler temp sets them off - I've read that's a trigger.

It will be interesting to see if babies do pop up in the tank. The ones in the tub are still very tiny so I'm guessing it's going to be weeks before any pop their noses out if they are there.

I usually try to match the temp but a degree or two lower seems to do the trick. Honestly as soon as I start siphoning the tank they start getting frisky and by the time I am adding water they are at it. One female really likes laying eggs on bottom of plant leaves and one of the others likes the glass and moss. Occasionally I will notice one or two babies (under 1/8") but its rare and if they are out and about when super small they dont usually make it. Generally I wont see the little guys until they are looking like 1/4" corys. At that point they usually do fine. Lots of plants and moss seem to do the trick.

I think since I have more CPDs and they are established now that they hunt alot more. Ive noticed much less shrimp babies as well so assume they are being hungry little buggers.

Nope, mine are on strike - they haven't spawned again since.

Babies (2.5 weeks) are doing well though. Getting bigger in a relative sort of way - they look like tiny corys but they really are teeny still.

Just for reference, here is a picture of the breeding box they are in too. It's a marina/superfish one but I'm feeding water in via an airline elastic banded to a small powered sponge filter rather than an airpump. I've flipped the intake tube around and fed the airline into it so water enters bottom left and exits top right. I've syphoning the bottom a little every other day too.

Just added the four babies to the tank with the adults:


No extras turned up in the main tank.

Amazing! They are such amazing little fish. I was hoping to spawn mine, but I am struggling to fatten them up.
Great work!
