Cory fry - pics

This post relates to an earlier one about cory eggs, and also to provide an example to a question in the photography section. These guys are about 5 days out of the eggs now; moving in rare bursts of energy, mostly hiding in the darker spots of the breeding net. The 'big' mass in the second pic is an algae wafer that did not get to the bottom of the tank... d'oh. I don't think they mind it too much.

I'll try to document these as time permits. 10 days along. Everybody has barbels now, a bit more color and a bit more motion, but I think they need cover before they can feel confident to go places.



peppered cories (paleatus) in case I didn't mention that before.
Edit: tried a few side pics through the breeder net, but they look terrible. The fish do have developing front fins, and a tail fin now; tough to see from above; will probably do the next pic in another week or so.

Very cool! Were you trying to breed them or did you get eggs by accident?

These eggs came by accident. I have 3 peppered cories, which I casually refer to as '1, 2 and 3', because they're all different sizes. I think 3, the largest, is the more mature female who dumped the eggs. I had recently started to feed them sinking algae wafers, which was a change from the loose flake and pellet food I use for the other fish in the tank. Then I took in a rainbow shark from my stepmom's classroom tank. 48 hours later, eggs on the glass! So it's either the new food or the perceived competition, I guess.

Latest inventory is 7 fry, might be 8 but they hide a lot.

Edit: Darkmule, if you have a network or PC that blocks flickr.com, the pics may not show up. I use that as a pic host so I can post pics of various sizes without making them a local attachment.

I've never had issues with flickr before. Odd. But I bet they're adorable! Congrats!

3 month cory fry update

Since fat momma cory has laid another batch of eggs today, figured it was time for an update; I've tried to update this thread as time went along, to show how the cory fry from March have grown... but they're tough to find in the crypts and moss! They've been shy, since only two of the batch survived, and intermediate pics have been tough to get. The ones that are left look OK to me though. Here's one of the two left, with shrimp pellet in front of him/her for relative size. This one is almost 1" long including fins, the other one's a tad shorter.
