Karen B. Posted May 16, 2022 Share Posted May 16, 2022 Greetings! I have tried a couple time to raise corydoras fry when I would see some eggs but each time, they would hatch and die within 24 hours. I tried putting them in the fluval hang on breeding box (it pumps water from the main tank/water circulate a bit) but it didn’t work. I tried putting them with my clown killifish fry in a glass container but they all died while the killies were thriving. So I gave up, let nature do its work and I did end up with few fry and even eventually had to sell some as my 20 gallons was getting overcrowded. Now I updated to a 30 gallons and would like to have few more (currently have 8). The problem is that since I added my 2 females honey gourami, no fry ever survive. Yesterday I was cleaning the tank and was astonished at how many eggs there was. I am about to label that tank 18+ so much these corydoras are having fun… 😅 I decided to try one last time and see if I could raise some. I had bought the Ziss fish breeding box for another purpose but I figured out I could try it - lots of water circulation and the box is actually inside the tank. My only problem is that the bottom is made out of mesh. I was afraid the eggs or the fry would go through so I came up with the idea of putting a glass container inside the box. The problem is that the fry swim out of it as soon as they hatch. At least now I know they won’t fall through. But I am afraid the mesh might hurt them when they swim/search around for food? It’s not sharp or anything tho. And there is the food. It won’t stay in or will it? I feed them fine powder food like Hikari first bite. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
