    Question Cory Fry and Eggs - To Separate or Not?

    0 Not allowed!
    Hi all! I set my panda cories up in a 10 gallon breeder and they have been laying eggs every other day, so now I have batches of eggs that are/will be intermittently hatching. I wasn't thinking, and put them all in the same floating container with an air stone (except for those they laid last night which I haven't gotten to yet). The first batch started hatching today. What is my best option? Should I separate the fry from the eggs that have yet to hatch? Is the container best, or a breeder net? Or, should I remove the adults and give them free range of the 10 gallon? The 10 gallon has a sand bottom, a sponge filter, and is cycled. When cleaning/doing water changes, any recommendations to avoid getting fry? I'm going to start the brine shrimp today for feeding tomorrow. I'm so excited - these little guys are my absolute favorites!

    Sounds like you are doing fine. Corries will usualy eat young in confined spaces. I would keep them in a breeder net once hatched. How much cover do they have in the 10gal? Maybe some java moss would help cover them if you wish to keep them in the main tank.
