Is my albino corydoras ready to breed yet?

So I've conditioned my albino corydoras with live food and flake food. What do I do now? There's another male in the tank and he ALWAYS swims with this female.

Here's a pic:

Do a water change with the new water slightly colder than the tank water. This is supposed to induce spawning.

Shhh!
We won't tell them!
Most breeders change water weekly at least.
claymans suggestion is good and a known trigger to spawning.
She looks ready or bloated?

Ideally to breed them you would want to put them in a bare bottom tank half full at their normal temp. Then add a gallon or two daily at 5-10 degrees cooler(careful not to put the temp difference directly on the glass). By the time the tank is full it should be cool enough to induce spawning.

Do you think I should do the water change tomorrow or wait one more week?

Because I read to let the nitrates build up first, then do a massive water change. Should I do a 15% water change?

From my understanding Corys can be sensitive to nitrates and this barbels will deteriorate at elevated levels. I would say to trigger spawning change 50%.

Okay I'll do it next week. It's too late right now and I'm busy during the weekdays.
