Eventually bred C.zygatus

Post by unotim123 »

After a long waiting, they bred 3 days ago. Despite all negativeness; such as only one male to four female, fertilization is low etc. 20-30 eggs continue growing. I shocked when female deposit 25-30 eggs at one time!It is very big number.That is 3. day of eggs and according to informations, there are only one day left for waiting.Here are a part of eggs photo.

Thanks to everyone.

There were around 70 eggs fertile and approximately 200 eggs infertile. No one get fungus of 70 eggs. But there are 15 eggs waiting to hatch.Fry are smaller than I expected. I am sorry for fry photos. I have Nikon D90 professional and it doesnt focus on so closely without zoom lens.
Forever cory!!

They are around 1 month old.Of course there are some size differences.A few of them are growing more rapidly, so that I seperated them to another tank.Things are going well, they are happy and I am happy. :YMHUG:
