Smile Love. My. Cory.

I have ten albino cory in a 36, including one baby (not albino), from the last unexpected breeding. Not counted in this are at least two fry from the last breeding. They are in a breeding net-box.

Albino cory are my favorites as they seem much less skittish, and I like to SEE my fish! I briefly had some false Julii, but they hid allllll the time.

Next, I want to get some Pygmy Cory...

They are such fun, mine (sterbai) also try and join my tetra's....or the tetra's are trying to join in the little Cory gang. I would too, they always look like they are on a mission!!

I'm trying to get mine to spawn. It looks like I have 2 males and 1 female, and one of the males is getting too old for this crap. The female is younger than my males so she's a little hardheaded.

Update on my shy sterbais: yesterday I saw them doing the Cory dance for the first time ever! In fact it looked like they were playing monkey in the middle with a cory on each side and a pair of platy fry swimming back and forth between them. Too cute! Nothing has changed in my tank, so maybe they are finally getting comfy. I would love to get them some more sterbai buddies, but that tank is totally overstocked until I sell some platy fry. Geez they bred worse than bunnies!

Like I say. Platys, guppies, mollies, and swordtails breed like tribbles. Best directions for breeding them: Step 1: put a male and a female in the same tank; Step 2: provide food. Done.

But on a side note, my female got skinny between last night and this morning. But I can't find any eggs. O.o

Blackworms

It seems like my cory lay eggs fairly soon after having live black worms and PWC of cooler water.
