Earlier this afternoon, as I threw some food into one of my cory tanks, I noticed a female C. venezuelanus carrying what looked like one egg, closely followed by a male--in usual cory fashion. Then I saw a group of eggs on the glass under the filter's flow.
So I waited a bit for them to eat and returned to try harvest the eggs before hungry mouths did it for me. I counted 27 eggs on the glass and saw a female dashing around clasping what appeared to be a yellow mass of eggs. It was so unusual as I never see cories clasping more than 2 at a time. She went up to the group of eggs I had just counted and proceeded to stick them on the glass. When she was done I counted the eggs again and they totaled 46! That means she was carrying 19 eggs in her fins!
Is this normal?
