hatch time depends on temp. If the eggs are still good, leave them alone. Baby cories need a lot of mulm to root around in for food

As long as the eggs are not solid white but a clearish yellow you are fine.

they are still white but now they have slim on them what should i do?

Well it sounds like they are infertile (unfertilized) and it sounds like they have fungus on them....but i could be wrong seeing as i have never had cory eggs.

So i would wait and see what other people have to say about this before taking my advice.

If they are white, they are either damaged or infertile.

Sounds like they are done. I am breeding corys now and have changed my strategy. For the next batch of eggs I will be transferring them to a 10 gallon tank with no substrate and sponge prefilter on the HOB. Methylene blue added to try to stave off the fungus. Hope it works. I have an albino cory that is HUGE with eggs.
