Sand bottom with cories. Bare bottom has shown higher mortality rate with the fry.Wow! Tons of information, thanks guys!
I will try to sex my corys in both tanks today... I will try to find something to do with my ZD.
I had honestly never thought about the Pleco before. Usually Albinos are hard to find where I come from, so that may be something for the future.
Ah, ok! I guess mine are called false Julii’s? https://www.seriouslyfish.com/species/corydoras-trilineatus/
Ok, that sounds like a plan. I will still need to get a heater and a sponge filter for the 5g - plants are plentiful now, so that should do.
Should I do a bare bottom or just lightly sanded tank for the fry?
Drew this up for you.Ok... so I tried to sex the corys, but they all look the same to me, lol.
Any pictures between male and female that could help me?
After spawning my aeneus cories, I read somewhere that neocaridina shrimp can be useful, that they will eat the fungus from fungused, spoiled eggs, and so help prevent the fungus from spreading to good eggs, while they will leave healthy eggs alone. I remember because I thought that was so awesome. I lost a lot of eggs to fungus despite checking and removing any eggs that had fungus several times per day, and I thought that next time, I might chuck a few of my cherry shrimp in there.General things to do before breeding any fish.
Remove all shrimp and snails from breeding tanks because they eat the eggs.
I was only able to get two measured in my 20g long, and those two came out to be 2.5 cm. (Each)What size is the largest fish in the group and what size is the smallest
Everything everyone else has been telling me, is to move them into the 5g and then once they lay eggs, remove the adults.No. Let them breed where they are and remove the eggs.
