Hi folks i have an Aquariumn with Cardinals tetra Glowlights Black Neon and selection of different Corys, i have noticed that the Blue ones had got big and one day there were lots of eggs on the Glass,

I wasnt trying to breed them but anyway tonight when i was looking in my tank i had a really Small Cory in the tank is this normal in a Community Aquariumn ?

Yes, it shows your tank is healthy and the fish like the conditions you are providing for them.

He's a lucky little guy :) He avoided being prey until he was large enough not to be regarded as food. It sometimes depends on what type of tankmates they have. You can remove the eggs gently with a razor blade and transfer them to a grow out tank if you'd like to give them a better chance at survival. All that is required is a small 5g cycled tank with a simple cheap sponge filter. You can return the cory babies to the main tank when they are big enough not to be eaten by the other fish in the community.

You feed the fry when the egg-sack is consumed. When they are swimming freely, they can be fed microworms, baby brine shrimp or powdered fish foods. I sometimes crush up New Life Spectrum grow pellets. Siphon the bottom of the tank daily and change out 50% of the water to get the best growth rate and healthy conditions. I say 50% because that's easy to do in a small tank.
