Shame you won't get many, if any, fry. But then they're likely to be hybrids if you do.......

    Some fry  *fish*

    Are those your cory fry from your most recent spawn? They're looking very good and a decent size already. Congrats.

    Yeah they range from 2-4 weeks old in that picture. Some almost ready to move out of the nursery.

    Shame you won't get many, if any, fry. But then they're likely to be hybrids if you do.......

    If I see any eggs I will try raising them to get some practice in. I don't intend to take rainbow breeding too seriously until they are all in species tanks.

    I know it's really bugging me now.


    Anyway today Iain came and took a pleco and while he was here he spotted a baby cory going about its business in the main tank. I didn't know it was even there.
    I think I will try full depth with the fry tank for a week then move the biggest ones over.

    Yep he was tiny but looking really well, already showing some nice colour :) at a guess i'd say he was just over 10mm long but looking chunky!
    Was good to see the tanks and all the inhabitants again, its all looking good :)

    God knows how it got there let alone grown so well. He/she must of found a nice hideout where plenty food gets stuck.

    I am starting to think about other species of cory that could do well in my waters for future projects, any ideas?

    Maybe bronze.
    Possibly paleatus (pepper), but they need it no more than 22C.
    I wouldn't attempt any others, they are all better in softer water.

    I would prefer my fish to thrive rather than manage.

    no offense meant, just wanted to let you know which ones you could possibly have based on your water hardness as its right at the top range for corys

    Yeah I understand and appreciate the input. It's still a list of possibilities. I am still surprised about my current success.
