Corry's spawning again

Post  DavidZ on Wed Feb 18, 2015 11:03 pm

Fed them a bunch of blackworms and frozen brine this week then hit with a big water change and presto!

Hope they are fertile.

I was going to ask you what you plan to do with them all!   Razz  But then I thought about my snails, and how I just had 4 big clutches laid in the past week... Shocked

And decided not to ask after all.  silent

Hopefully they will be fertile. This set of Corrys haven't spawned in a while, but they usually are. They last few spawns were in the tank of the younger ones and they havent been fertile.

I'll know in a day or two.

Do you know what causes them to be sometimes fertile and sometimes not? Do you think it had anything to do with the youngsters already in there?

Not really sure. I didnt see them spawn either time, so I dont know if a female was just doing it on her own, or if there even was a male present.

Didnt see this spawn either so it's anybodies guess at this point. These 'look' fertile, but I'm not really sure thats all that reliable.

They are so cute! Do you have them in one of those little plastic square "dividers" within another tank (with the orange fishes)?

I put them in the specimen containers, the things pet stores use to hold the bags while they are dippin' fish. Let's me keep them safe in the tank and easier to feed. I have a couple of them with cutouts on the ends with screens melted over the holes so I can have the fresh water come in one side, and circulate out the other without fish getting out.

So far so good with them.

Yea all my tanks in the fishroom are bare bottomed. Easier to clean and easier for the corries to find food.

Sure look different than just two weeks ago. I divided them into two containers as they were beginning to have to sit on each other.

Starting to look like little catfish, must be 120+ of them.

Should be a decent size in a month or so. I'll let everyone know when they are ready.

Wigglers, wigglers, everywhere!! I like the video updates. In fact, taking a cue from you, I just took a video a couple of days ago of my snails. Now if I can just get my butt in gear and actually POST the pics and videos I take. Yours give me inspiration - thanks!

So how long do you think the 2.5 gallon will suffice? lol

I will probably move them next week or so into a 10. Depends on how big they get.

I was doing a little cleaning of the tank of the parents of all these babies and found two more babies. Guess I missed those eggs and they hatched and survived. Pretty cool.

Were those "late hatchers" or are they the same size as the other babies?

Here is the latest update. I have moved them to their own 10-gallon tank. Still doing well.
