So my Corydora decided to lay eggs last night (or perhaps early this morning). Late to work of course- quickly dashing in to feed the fish and saw eggs all over the tank walls. One patch being grazed on by a Cory- another patch being grazed on by a Spixi Juvie. After a few seconds realising- those arn't Spixi eggs and none of my other fish would stick eggs to the glass I realised Corydora must be responsible. I have Aeneus (bronze and Albino) and Palaetus in the tank... I'm guessing it was one of the Bronze that layed eggs, there was one in particular who looked ready to burst recently. I recall reading you're supposed to wait 24 hours before removing the eggs with a razor blade- but not knowing when they were laid, and how long they would survive withouth being eaten I went ahead and removed them to the breeder net. (wish I had time to set up my hospital tank because snails sometimes climb into the breeder). So now I have perhaps 20 eggs (some fell when I tried to collect them and others no doubt had already been eaten). Going to do a little research tonight- but I seem to recall reading I can expect an egg to take about a week to hatch. Does anyone know what temperature the little guys can take- will I need a heater in the hospital tank if I make that their grow-out tank for a few months? The house stays in the 70s. Am I best keeping them in the breeder net until they're wriggling (if I can keep the snails at bay) - or seperating them into a seperate tank? Thank you.
