I dont suggest leaving it there...chances are they will be eaten right after they hatch. I would try to suction them out carefully.

I usually feed my fry baby brine shrimp. I get it in a little baby food jar at my LFS and then squirt a little bit right in their face. If you can't find that I've heard of people crushing up flake food until it's basically a powder. You can then take that powder and mix it with tank water and squirt it in there real close to them with something like a turkey baster.

Good luck. I've got some Kribensis babies that are about 3/4 of an inch long now.

I guess technically they don't need to eat right away. I don't know really. I guess just do what you think is best. I started feeding mine the day after or maybe the 2nd.

Kinda late, but....

infusoria

Take a clean gallon jar and fill it about 75 percent full of chlorine-free water. Put a few rotting lettuce leaves into the water and let it stand for a day uncovered. Then cover it and allow the jar to sit for several days. (Because the infusoria takes several days to culture, make sure you begin before the fry are born.) By that time the water should have a cloud of infusoria in it.

To feed your fish, take up some of the water with a turkey baster or eye-dropper and drip the infusoria into your fry tank. Begin with a few drops and feed several times a day. If you see your fry tank becoming cloudy, make a water change and cut back on the number of feedings. The infusoria will last for several days, long enough to allow your fry to develop to the point that they will be able to begin feeding on larger food.

After a week or so, you can begin feeding the fry live brine shrimp or microworms.

In the mean time, you can squeeze out a sponge filter into the fry tank. Crushed flake food is also a realistic option. Watch water quality.

It's offical..they are corys.i can see little feelers by ther mouths.Out of 12 eggs five hatched,four are surviving so far.

Ouestion: How often do corys spawn?
