  1. Default Eggs all over the glass!

    I woke up this morning to find eggs stuck all over the glass, logs, etc. The only things in the tank I can think that laid them would be my peppered cory's. I figure the eggs will get eaten? Even if they hatch, the fry will be gobbled in a community tank.

    I haven't raised fry for close to 40 years - don't have the room for them either as my tropical tank is only a 20 gallon at present. I just thought it was a hoot that they bred. Of course if I had been trying to breed them, it never would have happened!

    Well, a few hours later and there are only a few left so I guess I didn't have to worry!

    I have had a few fry from corys survive, but it takes a very well-planted tank with chunks of bogwood so they can find refuge and live foods. I never saw the eggs, but I spotted the tiny fry now and then. It is indeed rewarding when fish spawn naturally.

    Water changes will sometime induce Cory's to spawn, and yes if a couple survive it's a rewarding experiance.

    I remember the first time this happened, I was watching TV and I saw movement in the tank next to the TV, around the base of the driftwood. I finaly got up to look and there where two Bronze cory fry, grubbing in the substate. It was a pleasure watching them grow up and move further out into the tank.
