We bought 6 C. Adolfoi a month ago and we're planning to breed them in the next weeks, but we're not really sure if any of them is a female. We were told they were around +1 years old (caught in the wild -but I don't really think so-). My only experience breeding Corydoras is with C. Habrosus and C. Aeneus but I find rather difficult to sex C. Adolfoi. I'll give you a video so you could help me Thanks in advance
Thanks 4 the help. I'll be doing a journal the day we start breeding them Also, one last thing. *A guy commented on the video saying that they weren't trully C. Adolfoi but C. Duplicareus? Do you agree?
Good news. After six months since we bought our little cory "pack" they have decided Friday the 13th was the day to do some partying. They started breeding at 12:30~ and they stopped at 13:30~ after one hour we collected 43 eggs. It's the first time they lay eggs so we don't hope to get many fry from this.
Here are some pics of the eggs. (We've used a external breeding box to hatch em)
A week later around 15~ lil' cories are still alive. (the rest of the eggs got fungus/were unfertilized -didn't use antifungal since I've read it doesn't work anyway-) When they started to hatch (less than 72 hours) we added some java moss, half marimo ball and two pieces of a catappa leaf and 20~ three days old apple snail to help with infusoria. Also we are feeding them 2-3 drops of JBL nobil fluid 5 times a day and a pinch of microvit hi protein (tropical fry powder food) twice a day. I can't share photos of them bcause they keep hiding under the leaves 99% of the time (and we don't have macro lens). Any suggestion?
PS; 6 months later we're not 100% sure if our cories are C. Adolfoi or Duplicareus
