    I was going to ask you guys how many cory’s I could house in the now empty 120 l. tank.
    But it looks like my Pepper-couple already have decided that for me, because they have been adorning the 60 l. tank all day with their eggs. I know they will most probably eat them them self, but to me this looks like they feel at home where they are right now. Or is that just romantic humbug?
    There are two peppers, one bronze and one bronze albino in the tank. Please let me know your experiences with corys if you would like.

    if you could move the adults to the 120Ltr it would be nice to see the young, – in it you can house a fairly large group of them comfortably I guess…20ish maybe

    20ish??
    Yeah, I am kinda planning to move them to the 120 l. tank, but the problem is that this is still pretty dirty from the goldies who lived there. I’ll have to clean that up first.
    I have been to our local petshop to inquire about cory’s but alas. They don’t expect cory’s untill about 5 weeks or more. I don’t think the babycorys have that long, but it gives me room enough to clean the large tank and then decorate it they way the corys live, kinda South American-ish. Suggestions to do that as cheap as possible are very very welcome and I think not just for me.

    Guys, how many eggs can a cory lay? Both couples are spawning now. I stopped counting at what..200? And they keep busy at it! /tongue.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”:p” border=”0″ alt=”tongue.gif” />

    hi Lizzy, out of one spawning that a gossei had there was over 400 eggs and most of them hatched.
    paleatus and aeneus are both producers of large spawns depending on the size of the females.

    a sponge filter is no problem for the fry

    Lizzy a way to save some of the fry if the parents are to stay is, a decent sized piece of slate propped up a few cm above the gravel and the fry will flock under it for protection, just make sure the parents can’t get under the slate.

    the eggs hatch in 3-4 days depending on the temp of the tank, a rule of thumb is 7 days from laying is the first time you feed them.
    not sure on the tree Lizzy, the fry seem to swim to an area thats dark so a piece of bogwood propped up a few cm would be fine.

    Thanks Mick. There is bad news. Lots of the eggs are covered by fungi ( I hope I spell that correct) I don’t understand this, the fungi are on the eggs who are 24 hours older and not (yet) on the others, while they are on the same places . I haven’t seen any fry yet.

    for fungus you should add something like meth blue, which is an antifungal…happens sometimes, and from exp if it starts, all eggs will get it
