I moved cory eggs into the shrimp tank last week when I saw them on the tank wall. More for curiosity if they would actually live. I put them on the wall above the sponge filter for the air flow because the thing I read said that they needed good aeration.
I watched them but they didn't look like they were fertilized and then I just assumed the shrimp ate them because they were gone before the 3-4 day time period was up... or so I thought.
Today we have little teeny tiny cory babies running around the tank. I saw at least 5. They are so cute, like teeny sperm running around on the sand.
That tank now has 8 platy babies and now cory babies in there with the shrimp.
Not sure how big I should let any of them get before we move them to the bigger tanks.
BAHAHA teeny sperm! I'm sorry it's late and I had a long day so that was far to funny.
I've only had platy babies but I wait until they are bigger than the mouth of the biggest fish in the tank I want them in so there is only a small chance of them being eaten. I would assume you would do the same for any fry.
We already have 19 or 20 cory - no idea what we are going to do with these. They are so happy and active. They Zoom Zoom all over my tanks, they make me smile just watching them. Truely they are one of my favorite fish.
Pretty sure they are going to be albino as they don't look like they are going to turn peppered. At the moment they really do resemble little sperm, little white heads with tadpole tails. So cute. Still not seen more than 5, so unless they are hiding well, i think there are 5 babies in there.
