I think I have cory eggs, Do they lay them in plants? That is the only thing in my tank that would lay eggs. What is the care of cory eggs? Is there anything special I need to buy to feed them if they hatch?20H freshwater

Yes, cories do lay eggs on plants, on the glass, and any other flat surface they can find.
When our cories laid eggs, some good people on the forum instructed us to remove the eggs by scraping them off with a razor blade and placing in their own seperate tank. Also, you'll want to add methylene blue to keep any fungus at bay.
Ultimately, we decided not to remove them, and we never got any cory fry. The eggs that weren't eaten by the cories ended up with fungus.
The thread about our cory eggs is here:

Yep I recently had the same thing! Unexpected Cory Eggs! I took mum and dad out but the eggs got fungused. So good luck is all I can say as I had no luck with mine. But everything I have read says to use Methylene Blue to stop them fungusing...
