Last week a group of my Corydoras aeneus laid a bunch of eggs n my newly planted 30g growout aquarium. Just this morning I noticed that the eggs have hatched and the fry are now wiggling around. From what I can see, they will be feeding off their egg yolk for a few days and once free swimming I will be feeding them crushed flake food and a variety of foods high in protein like baby brine shrimp.

Check out this video that I took a few minutes ago!

Thanks Don! They are in a tubberware container for now. As soon as the water heats up in my other tank I will transfer them over-probably tomorrow.

When they get bigger I would like to keep a group of 6 or so and then sell off the rest.

If you'd like some, let me know and I'll send some your way.

Thanh - Thanks, Corydoras metae are also known as Bandit corydoras right? They are awesome. Eventually I would like to try and breed Panda corydoras and the Sterbai specie.

Yea, I just Google the Corydoras matae and they look like Bandit corydoras. Very awesome, they remind me of Panda and Skunk Corydoras, sort of.

Does this mean you have a tank set up already!?!?! I will be excited if I am able to see it in April! :supz:

Unfortunately those ADA tanks is still empty. House is still being remodel. Arrgggg, just hate it, damn HGTV! I will at least set up a small mini S soon, I hope. :rolleyes:

I threw the corys in with the Discus tank. Just for some water action in the house for now.
