    Sadly, but not surprisingly, fry now number 7. It's like they disappear into the ether. I have never found any little bodies. Weird!

    are they small enough that they can swim (or get sucked into) the intake or outlet that circulates water between your breeding tank and the main tank? Although now that you mention it, my very first attempt to hatch cory eggs failed, and the newly hatched fry just sort of... disappeared. disintegrated.
    300 gallon mega tank: sailfin pleco, clown loaches, silver dollars, roseline sharks, congo tetras, new world cichlids

    I think I told you that my cory fry had dwindled to 6 from 11. Still at 6.

    I decided today I would clean the main tank. I always start with the filter. I cleaned it all and was putting it back together when I noticed a fry in a puddle on the counter! I quickly got it and put in back in the fry tank.

    I wondered if there were more. Remember, I had cleaned the sponges etc in the aquarium water and then dumped it all. I looked carefully and found a few little bodies adhering to the sides of the filter. Got them. Then found more in the little water that remained at the bottom of the filter.

    So, are you ready....my fry count now totals 14! Now I am not very good at math, but this does not add up!

    What I think happened is that my corys spawned before I went on vacation. Some of those must have survived and were sucked into the filter. The odd thing is that they are a bit smaller than the ones in the breeder tank. Maybe just that they didn't get enough food in the filter.

    How's that for a miracle!?

    Hey Brhino:

    Sorry I didn't reply to this. Yeah, I think it is a problem. There is a little grate where the water from the breeder tank flows back into the main tank. I tried putting netting over it but that slowed the water enough that I worried it could back up completely and overflow all over my living room. The fry would be part of that overflow, of course. But given what has happened (see my miracle post) I think I had better try that again.

    Thanks Lady Hobbs. Certainly nothing I am doing "right". These guys (and gals) just have the chemistry, I guess. I notice they tend to spawn when I change the water, especially if I change more than the usual 20% and if it's colder. That really gets the old hormones going. I notice the others get amorous too but only the bronze seem to get it right.

    I have a pair of peppered Corys, for sure. The male has amazingly long dorsal and pectoral fins and she is just ordinary looking but pleasingly plump. They get into it but haven't had fry yet.

    These fry have just hatched (over the course of several hours today) and tho they look like little balls with tails, they are scooting around like little demons. Must be a difference in species (if that is the correct word to use) within the Cory range.

    I will wait for a bit to start feeding. And...sorry for so many questions...how many times a day did you feed?
    My experience is NOT to use lighting that is too bright. When the light is too strong, it seems to irritate them big time. That's when I used to observer Demon-like, zapping swimming patterns.
