Hi two questions on corys, first how long do they live for? and at what age do they start to spawn?. Ive got 6 sterbai cory about 1 and 1/4 inch dont know how old they are, ive had them 2 months, also ive got 6 baby albino cory they are about 4 months old, and quite small but very lively, just got them yesterday, they have settled in really well. Thanks Mick

A few web pages I spotted claim that under ideal conditions, Corydoras can live 10-15 years and beyond. (I was surprised!)

My next door neighbour told me he got some cory when he setup his first tank. That was 11 years ago and he still has the original 6 cory. :hyper:
