    Well, I opened up my rena Xp3 on my 75 gallon goldfish tank, and to my supprise, I found two 1/2 inch peppered cories inside.

    Im not exactly sure how they got into my goldfish tank, Im assuming they were on a plastic plant that I moved over, or how they got passed the goldfish, or how they survived the filter for so long, but I am amazed, lol.

    has anyone else ever had anything like this happen to them?

    Also, how old would 1/2 inch cories be? Im just trying to get an idea of which batch of eggs they are from, but Im assuming that they are from the first, which woudl make them about 3 weeks old (?)

    Last time I opened my canister filter I had three 1/2" emerald cory fry in there. Only reason I opened it was because I saw one swimming around inside. I've also had a goldfish fry in my canister before too. The corys I know were around 1 month old as I hatched some of the others. It is pretty amazing that they can survive that
