So, either my Lasers, Bronze or Panda cories have spawned but i have nowhere to put the eggs except in the breeders net .However I already have one, 1 week old Guppy fry in the breeders net atm. Will the guppy fry eat the eggs?? Or the Cory fry when they hatch??
Cheers, Imogen.

You couldn't really hatch and raise cory fry in a breeder trap anyway, you need a separate tank.
 
I usually raise them in the breeders net in the parent tank and when they're a bit bigger I release them into their own tank, simply because i usually have a couple of different age stage cory babies going at the same time and i find the older cory fry eat the smaller ones! My lasers have been notorious for that!

Oh well, if it works for you :)
 
Actually, I think your idea is better, if i was to do it the way you suggest, would you just put all the eggs from the main tank to the straight into the fry tank an leave them or let them hatch in a breeders net then transfer them? Might give it a go!
