cory eggs!

Had the wonderful surprise of coming home to see my fat cory is now not so fat and I have 10 visible eggs now I want to know how long they will take to hatch and anything I can do to keep them safe? Any help is greatly appreciated.

They take 3-5 days to hatch and need to be pulled out of the tank. The fry will get eaten. The eggs are tough so you can use a credit card or something similar to take them off the wall. You can leave them in the tank and see what happens but I never had luck that way.

I don't have another tank so I had the idea to put them into my breeding trap.. only problem is my platy is very heavily pregnant and I was going to put her in there tomorrow.. if she give birth will the fry eat the eggs?

If you only fill it half way, any container will float. Just make sure to change it every day.

Sorry about the double post. I would get the eggs now because they take a day or two to hatch and the fry will starve in that time plus it is handy to always have some.
