O.O. I just now read your posts over and that is amazing that your betta has been raising the cories. I guess to him, eggs are eggs, and he is going to protect them and raise him.

I also have that "issue" with the "dead cory look." My oldest boy Creepy will sit motionless for forever. I just have to keep in mind that he is sitting motionless on the bottom of the tank and not floating upward.

Miah, remind me of what color your cory is. My memory has been kinda foggy lately. Too much studying. That's what it is. >>;

Yeah cories aren't good parents but betta dads are fantastic parents. In the first spawn they ever had, which is the only one I personally witnessed, Horton actually went through and ate all the eggs that had fungus of the ones laid in his section. He also gladly shares his betta flakes with his babies. I think it's amazing that the cories actually few him as their dad/protector and not a threat since he's so big and colorful.

Casper makes it worse by literally burying herself upside down in the sand. If you tap the glass she comes out and looks at you like "why would you do that I was having fun." My mom tries to fish her out of the tank at least once a week thinking she's dead.

She was labeled as a 'Green cory catfish'

I have a picture of her, too.

Oh, okay. I have seen those, they are pretty. Just to let everyone know, If you feel like sharing a pic or two, that would be fine with me. Honestly, I don't have a good camera and if mine spot the camera, it's over. Over the gravel and into the skull, to hide from the camera we go... o.o;

I"m surprised you say that; my cories love the camera. They come up to see what the 'shiny thing' is before hogging the view. It's a problem if I'm trying to photograph anyone else in the tank. :P
