    Default Saving cory eggs?


    0 Not allowed!
    So in the past two weeks I've noticed at least 100 cory eggs on the walls of my tank and each time they've been eaten. All there is left is the white outline of what was an egg. How should I go about trying to save them? I'd like to try and have a few hatch but I'm so nervous about trying to scrape the eggs off. What's the safest way to go about this??

    I just peel them off with my fingers and put them in a 5 gallon tank with lots of moss. It works quite well. I've got more than 100 fry scurrying around right now.

    I'll try that the next time around if I notice them in time. The neons and angels are getting a pretty good midnight snack at the moment. I have an empty 10 gal running right now. Would it be better if it were bare bottom or is gravel ok?

    Bare bottom is best for fry tanks. Gravel would not be a good idea because it would trap rotting food.

    You'll want to run an airstone to keep the eggs aerated.

    My cory lay there eggs in the same spot all the time. T was not able to save them most of the time. Now I use Plexiglas in my tanks. I have been able to save them that way.

    Default cory fry and substrate

    I've read that bare bottoms are not good for cory fry and that a thin layer of sand is far better. That's what I've used and I've had great success.

    Found my breeder net just in time! Saw a few eggs on the unpopular side of the tank, lol. Was able to snatch them up before the tetras got to them. I've got the net just to the side of the return flow from my filter. They're getting plenty of fresh moving water and bubbles so hopefully I'll have some fry soon!

    If you look really closely you might be able to see the eggs!
