C. Weitzmani Spawn

Post by MissNoodle »

Finally got my group of 4 to spawn, these are the cories I WANTED to breed. Everyone else bred on their own lol

I set up a 20g tote with dark tannins, no lighting, an internal filter on high output for stronger current, added leaf litter, a couple plastic plants.

Conditioned them by feeding 2 times a day plus frequent feedings of live baby brine shrimp and frozen goodies.

Did just one water change and the next day ive got eggs!

I will be keeping some of them to add to the adult shoal, as I've wanted a larger group :D

I collected 11. I want to see if they may lay more over the next few days or if they ate most of them while I was sleeping overnight lol



This was my set up i used for breeding. Just a simple tote, with a filter, sand, driftwood shelter, oak leaves, and 3 plastic plants.
This was yesterday before they spawned. Note the boys chasing the female

They've begun to hatch!!

Theyre so much bigger than aeneus and trilineatus hatchlings once first hatched!

While the parents spawn no problem, the eggs either don't hatch or the fry that do hatch don't make it past 2 days old.
Ive given the parents a break for now, gonna maybe try again with RO water in the future.
My water is soft, but maybe not soft enough? Its one of the last things I haven't tried yet
