A happy surprise--a baby albino cory!
Tonight I found a baby albino cory in my 27-gallon tank. The tank has driftwood and is pretty heavily planted so there are lots of good hiding places. There have been quite a few eggs around the tank, but I'm surprised that any of them survived long enough to hatch.
So here are my questions:
The little cory is about a half-inch long. Could it get eaten by any of the other fish in the tank (black neon tetras, von rio tetras, and the other albino cories)?
Does it need any special food? Everyone gets frozen food (daphnia, bloodworms, glassworms, or brine shrimp) every 3-4 days. The rest of the time the cories get algae wafers and everyone else gets Omega flake food.
Is there anything else I need to do to help it survive to maturity?
