I was cleaning my 125 gal. tank today and I found a Cory Catfish fry. I was very pleasantly surprised, but shocked. I never thought my Cory's would reproduce in a community tank The tank has tetras, a few platys and mollies, one angel fish, Glo Fish and a 10-12 inch Pleco. My questions is, is it common for a cory to reproduce in a community tank?

I have never had anything but the live bearers successfully breed in my tanks. I have had quite a few tanks, but this is my first 125 gal. I've had it about a year now and really love it. I'm learning so much more with it that I ever have.
I guess I was under the impression that even if egg layers spawn, they would not be successful in producing without the perfect environment. I'm very pleased to find this baby in my tank. Makes me happy my tanks is healthy enough for this baby to be thriving.
Thank you for your relay.

Ideally yes. In reality not. Many fishes have behavioral and other life history needs, such that conditions are simply not possible in aquaria. Flagtail Semaprochilodus, for instance- nobody has or will breed it in a community thank. In aquaculture settings, they have been bred in large ponds, but using hormones.
