all my fish gather round when the cores start,and mine are the albino
ones.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

don't worry about meth blue. the day after they hatch, (when they begin swimming) feed them egg yolk. It's up to you whether you boil it first, but only feed a drop at a time, as many times a day as you can. an hour after you feed them, change the water in their floating container. Before they hatch, gentle oxygenation can help.

Are you just looking for a breeding pair of cories? If so I think it would be easier to buy a group of your own cories at a local pet store and follow the common techniques to get them to spawn rather than attempting to buy and ship cories from someone who isn't offering them for sale. I find that if you give bronze/green cories (C. aeneus) the right stimulus they will spawn really well for you. Also cories need to be kept in groups of at least 4 to be happy.

+1 to Hedgehog.

Sorry Marlboroak, my little guys arent for sale. I have three, not a pair. I wouldnt separate them for a million bucks LOL! Also I have never shipped fish.

(fyi, reason why I have 3 is because one got stuck in a peice of cactus wood, even though I got him out he didn't make it.)

1 Male ~ 5 Females
3 Bronze Cories
1 Hamster
Soon, 1 cornsnake!

Well if some of eggs hatch and the fry survive you'll get your school back to a proper size. I've had one die when I had four. We found our two babies shortly after so we didn't replace the adult cory.

They eggs have fuzzed over, so I doubt anything will come of them :( Hopefully next time they'll work out, and maybe I'll have some meth. blue by then....
