Thread: cory behaviour

  1. #1

    Default cory behaviour

    0 Not allowed!
    This is my first time owning corys so I am after some experienced opinions. I have 6 three lined corys in my 26g and I think they may have spawned the other day, i say some marks on the tank glass that looked like eaten eggs to me, the neon tetras mustve got to them before i saw them. At the moment most of the time the corys are really active, more than they were a few weeks ago. they seems to excitedly follow eachother almost all of the time and often swim quickly up and down the tank wall after eachother like they are playing a game of tag. I am aware corys dart up to the surface to gasp air but what im talking about mine doing, they dont go all the way up to the surface, they just go up and down and up and down repeatedly and it's different to darting up for air. I havent seen any T positions yet, i've been feeding them plenty of bloodworm and wafers and doing cool water changes every other day, plus it's been raining here which I hear can also be a trigger. Does this sound like my corys are keen to breed? or is is just plain old wacky cory antics?

    Breeding behavior outside of the t- position consists of seval smaller males following/chasing a larger female and shimmying with their fins and attempting to position themselves in front of the female. If you can observe that then your fish are breeding.m

    +1 to that. What pckroeger describes sounds like happy healthy fish to me.
