I caught my cories spawning this morning and was able to snap a few shots of the female depositing eggs.
They're in a planted 40b. (diy lighting 23 PAR @ substrate, heavily planted, no CO2) There are 7 in there (I have 8, but one is in QT because there's something up with his eye.) I got them from a fellow board member who suddenly found himself in unfortunate circumstances and needed to clear out tanks/plants/fish. Their only tankmate is a female bolivian ram hat came from the same user. I have my h2o params in a log in the fish room, I'll have to get back to you on that.That is really cool! I was thinking of trying to breed some cories. Can you tell me how you did this? Tank size, water parameters, any other inhabitants? Have you ever had them lay eggs before?
I uploaded from my photo software to my server.. They've already been cut down a bitHoly gigantic photos, batman. Maybe cut those things down to size before uploading?
I'm excited! It's my first time keeping cories in about 10 years and my first time rearing them.There's nothing cooler than baby Cories!

I figure since they don't get hosted here, why not leave em big. (Especially since they auto resize in the forum.)
If its a big deal I can resize.
I'm currently raising lots of fry (2 T. Ocellicauda spawns and ongoing hatchings of I. Werneri) so I have lots of tank space already devoted to little ones. The eggs have mostly been removed (either via scraping from glass or leaf removal.)When our albinos spawned in our 46 gal, since it is a community tank with all sorts of fish, we used a cup and plucked out out as many eggs as we into the cup and transfered them into a 10 gallon ghost shrimp tank we have set up with a sponge filter we literally put the eggs right next to the sponge filter on the glass and a few days later a bunch hatched we ended up with about 8-9 more corys, we had only found 12 or so eggs to move over I do believe the other fish in the community tank gobbled down a bunch before we spotted them we love corys and have 6-7 different kinds they are such happy little fish
