Hey everyone! I came home to my peppered cories spawning earlier today, and have spent atleast 2 hours today getting their eggs off of my plants and into a .75 critter keeper because I noticed some of my sorority girls were eating the eggs. Right now I've got about 105 eggs (give or take a few) floating in the main tank and all thats inside of the critter keeper is a bubbler. Their temperature is at about 79*.
What else should I do to keep them?
I have micro & banana worm cultures for them, I also have some BBS that I can hatch if necessary.
From what I've been reading Cory fry need about the same care as betta fry at the beginning, does that sound correct?
Also, I just had one of my HMPK pairs spawn today, would it be okay for me to put the cories and the betta fry in the same grow-out?
Thanks for any information that anyone has. I would like to keep as many alive as possible.
This was a completely accidental spawning. I knew I had 2 males 1 female, but I've had them 6 months and they had never spawned for me before.
Anyone that I dont rehome to friends, family, or people on here or other forums I'm a member of, will be going to the LFS which has expressed great interest in buying any of the fry I end up with of any species I keep, so I dont have to worry too much about re-homing.
