Hi those fish are not that easy to sex. e, it is possible to tell males from females by comparing fish. The males have a more streamlined body then females. Females are more compressed body, and thicker at the abdomen (where the eggs are) and higher in structure.

Mature female cory cats are usually much larger than males. They are egg scatterers. If you want them to spawn, put two males with one female and lower the aquarium temperature. Sometimes, they will also spawn in a community tank without any encouragement from the aquarist.

Cory cats prefer to be in large groups. A group of three or four is about the minimum.

Hi Lokie,

For future reference, please create a new thread for your question by clicking on the "Ask A Question" button at the top of this page. That way, your question will receive undivided attention, and we won't have to go scrolling through old posts. This thread was posted over 4 years ago!

In response to your question, cories do not get pregnant, as they are egg layers. Cories gravid with eggs tend to be a bit on the more plump side. Overfeeding can also cause chunky cories. Remember, these are small fish, and only need small meals!

No worries. If you have any other questions regarding this topic, I can move your posts over to a new thread (all your own! ), if you'd like?

EDIT: Never mind, I see you've already created a new post.
