    i must have missed this post.
    hmm, strange one as rainbows lay small easily munched eggs.
    could they have been from something else in the tank?

    thanks for your cconcern guys! it may have been form the rainbows, as they looked like it, but nothing else apart form the corys themselves are breeding. but the eggs were far to small to be cory eggs.

    I’d guess cory eggs, unless you have snails in the tank. Were they stuck to the glass?

    im afraid i cant tell you that but they didn look stuck, as in glue, they were wedged in her throat. she probably thought she ould have a munch and just bit of more than she could chew, literally!

    Hey

    Unlike the majority of Corydoras the beautiful Corydoras panda rarely spawn by attaching their eggs to glass or plants. Instead they prefer to use artificial spawning mops as an egg deposit site.

    mine breed every 2 – 3 weeks or so, laying around 10 – 20 eggs on my anubias nana. but she hasnt got a very good aim to fertilize them. i have 3 panda cories, 1 female and 2 females. theypester her constantly, so i believe she hasnt got enough time to lay and fertilize them. i have 12 fry atm ready to sell

    hahaha that would be a very large challenge as im in England! our market is up and down, but the 3 cories i bought were £5.50 each. for around a 3-4 cm specimen. some shops have them at around £4-£5 yet others have them priced at £8-£9 each! my local maidenhead aquatics is the best on quality and price, and he can get almost anything form zebra plecos to rare discus and cichlids, but at a steep price lol! whats ur market like?
