Well I hope so! I guess I've had them about a year and a half now. I wonder if they'll start breeding more often? I saw them doing the breeding dance last night but I've seen them do it often before. I didn't really think they'd go through with it. LOL. I have two females and two males.
They've eaten a lot more of them. From the 40 some that were on the front, only about 10 are left. I think I'm just going to let them go. If I get a couple babies, so be it.
You can see where some eggs USED to be by the white rings. :P I don't think I'll need to feed these guys for at least 4 days. Lol!
Well, day two and some of them are turning a beige color, which means they're fertile, as I understand. At this point I think I have about 20 - 30 eggs. I'm still avoiding having to destroy them. Lol. I'm thinking I'll let nature take it's course. They'll probably end up being an Endler snack but maybe a few will live.
Yeah maybe. I just found another large group of eggs in the back. I think I'm going to wait a couple days, see how many the corys eat and then remove as many as I can and dispose of them. I just read that they take a whole year to mature to the point where they can be sold. I have no room for 140 catfish for a year. Really, no room at all. I can't cram them in a 20 gallon either. That would just be wrong. Those bad, bad, bad corys!
This is what you get when corys don't act responsibly about sex.

According to the people over at planet catfish, they're corydoras venezuelanus rather then corydoras aeneus (bronze corys). But honestly I've tirelessly looked through pics of both and I can't tell. They're too similar.
