I so wanted to breed cories at some point, but I'm not ready!! Was not expecting this at all, they were only meant to be in this tank for quarantine! Was planning to move the adults this Tuesday.Happy day...I think you have a gender reveal party in a dry, wooded area with a long, rich history of catching fire and then reveal the genders with pyrotechnics. Seems to be quite popular here in the US.

Just been reading @NCaquatics advice about cory fry (she breeds cories, has raised so many fry) and think they need to be a smaller container when they first hatch, they're not very co-ordinated when they first hatch apparently, they might have a hard time finding food in a 12.5 gallon tank. Which is also full of guppy fry right now too... yikes. And they need almost complete daily water changes, my sand is dark, I'd never see the fry if they were roaming the whole tank.Happy day...well, what did you expect to happen? You throw a bunch of young, frisky, nubile critters into an area that they find suitable for breeding and blammo, unintended pregnancies happen. Oh wait...I think that's called university. Well...how about just letting the quarantine tank be their tank? Its generally been my experience that fish breed in environments suitable to them and their young, so maybe find great comfort in how amazing your quarantine tank is and let nature take its course?
Hahaha, thank you! They're bronze cories. I thought it would fun to breed them at some point, but thought I'd have to try, you know? And that I'd be ready and more prepared because I'd have had to try to induce spawning, you know.Aaahhahaha that's hilarious.
@AdoraBelle Dearheart that's awesome - sorry about the unexpectedness though lol. I've read that even just being exposed to a gradual sunrise can cause Cory's to spawn but not sure.
What kind of Cory's are they anyway?
Best of luck regardless, sorry can't be of more help!
Thank you!All I can say is - take some deep breaths then search for everything NCaquatics has written on hatching cories. I've only ever hatched a few pygmy cories by accident - I didn't even know there were eggs, the fry just appeared.
