    I'd ask is it so... But there is NOTHING else in here, they are still in QT and I got them so tiny.
    So I've gotten the best photos I could in my unlit QT of the eggs and some questions for you all.

    How long till hatching?
    Can anyone tell if any are viable eggs or if they are all just bunk?
    What do I do for babies? Feed, temp, do I need to separate? If separation is necessary do I pull eggs or wait for fry?
    I'd LOVE to have some more of these little lovelies so any and all advice is tremendously welcome!

    I've been a terrible fish keeper for these guys as I've STILL not done appropriate research on them having bought them spur of the moment like a noob and several weeks later I still haven't done it but they are an absolute hoot and I'd love to add to their little school.

    FYI they did this between 3:00 & 5:00 in the afternoon! I assumed this behavior would be a nighttime thing.

    Did it rain? Mine like thunderstorms and a water change.

    You will see them hatch in 3-4 days Generally if they make it.
    if you have a way to keep them a razor blade off the glass into a hatching vessel with some methylene blue and a small sponge

    Most Cory’s can do brine shrimp babies. Golden pearls are also an option

    Yikes four days.... Uhm I have no decapaulated baby brine on hand and I've never done golden pearls.... I have meth blue and could artificially hatch and out in a 10g that's well established that I use to raise out CPD fry maybe? Or I have rotifers!?

    Why babies in a qt tank lol they u sure didn't make it easy for me to grow them up lol

    And no it hasn't rained in weeks lol high desert no rain this time of year! And I didn't dip temps and WC was Tuesday, they would get one tomorrow but eggs are too high on the glass so I may just start doing a gall or two daily to keep them solid and not expose eggs....

    So I run that tank low 70's... Not a problem to raise it a bit I can get it up before 3-4 days. Aeneus fry should probably be kept at what temp?

    Congrats on the cory eggs. If they're the only fish in this tank, I don't think it's necessary to move them, but if you do, maybe move half and leave half where they are, just to see if there's a difference in raising them. Many cories like temps a little cooler so low 70's should also be fine - if the adults are OK, the fry should be too. Aeneus are one of the larger cories, too, so they may even be able to take some Bug Bites, if you can get them. The tropical fish variety are a little smaller than the bottom feeder ones so try those to start. But try also frozen baby brine shrimp, decap brine shrimp and even just crushed flakes. You've got a few days even after they hatch to get some appropriate foods in so no worry. This is exciting!

    Congrats on the eggs!!!!
    My cory fry did really well with microworms. I had small ramshorn snails and a few neos in the tank and they kept the eggs free of fungus. Meth blue would ensure there is no fungus. Good luck!

    Btw, I think some are viable. I think I see something in the middle.

    Congratulations, I hope you get a good hatch ;-)
