Lennie Posted January 14 Share Posted January 14 (edited) (This topic includes fish NSFW. 😄 ) 5 mins ago, I've entered to my room to feed my 29g community tank where I keep my sterbai cory school. I know there is only one male in the school and the rest are full girls 😄 The boy is the shiest fish I've ever kept, so I was surprised to see him with a female one in front of the glass. I should've guessed there was something going on at that moment. As you may guess, lil buddies were on some action. I fed them frozen food last nite, and did the weekly maintenance with a colder water change this morning, I was thinking of maybe they would spawn by any chance. Considering I'm starting a new tank, what could be even better than having my own babies moved to a new home!! I got the corys when they were juviniles almost a year ago, and never seen spawning before, so I was not hoping much again. The sad part is, whenever she leaves an egg, it is probably eaten by the rummy noses. I've seen one directly eating literally in less than a sec she left the egg on the glass. She keeps swimming through dense plants, driftwood and rock literally looking at places to lay. I don't know what to do. The only chance seems to make any sense is moving her to my snail quarantine tank for her to spawn? I am scared of stressing her. That's the last thing I would like to cause, especially when she's spawning. Even tho there are lots of plants in my tank, I don't think it is likely that eggs would survive in the tank right? I tried turning off the lights too but it seemed to make her stressed a lil. Maybe I am over thinking. Maybe I keep the lights off and check for any eggs in the early morning? I only kept easy african cichlids and guppies ages ago, and their breeding behavior is different than corys as you can easily tell. How long do they keep spawning btw? Losing eggs to other fish seems to be the only negative side of having a community tank I guess 😥 Thanks for the help in advance!😊 Edited January 14 by Lennie Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
