Hi everyone,
I have a 75 gal tank I would love to get some Corydoras for. It will be at 82-84 degrees F so I probably get Sterbai Corydoras. However I would really like a big school and I noticed their relatively high price. I have a 20 gal tank that I can pretty much modify in any way and I was wondering if it would be realistic to breed Corydoras in there. What is the process? How long does it take? How many babies should I expect if they are successful?
Minimum size tank for bigger Corydoras is 30inches long.
Most Corydoras usually breed when 2 years old.
If they are well fed and looked after, they breed regularly and lay between 20-200 eggs per female. The eggs are stuck to the glass or firm flat objects in the tank.
I agree with @Colin_T. Also make sure your tank gets early morning sun strike, first rays. I also think your tank is a little to warm for cats. If you can lower the temperature to the high 70's. Lots and lots of plants.
