My Corydora catfish has lay eggs. Lots of eggs!! She spent about 18 hours on and off laying them. Problem is she now looks unwell. She is sitting very still leaning on glass side of aqurium. Could she just be tired or could she be unwell? Is there anything I can do to help her?
give her a little snack like a algea tab. but other then that make sure the water and every thing is fine then just wait and see if she is ok. thats the best i can do to help.
Thanx Ace. She is my favourite fish! My water is spot on. I will try her with something to eat and keep an eye on her. Ive turned the lights off too.
Congratulations. Cory cats are great aquarium fish.
she mite just be really tired and just needs some rest. i have not had Cory cats long and they are all ready being my second favorite there is no way they are better then my kuhli louches.
Good luck with the eggs! Hopefully you'll keep us posted om their progress.
Thanx everyone for all of your answers and support. I have 4 corydoras: 1 peppered (this is the one who has laid eggs), 1 bronze and 2 albino. I love them all but my peppered one (called Pepsi) is my favourite fish ever. She is huge compared to the others. They live very happily in my 165L aqurium with 2 bristlenosed plecs, 4 platties, 4 zebra danios, 4 rasboras, 4 gouramis and my one remaining male guppy!
Pepsi seems back to normal today. Eating everyones food!!
There are lots of eggs that survived being eaten so watch this space. I dont have a breeding tank so fingers crossed for any survivors. I have had baby platties survive in here.
I will update soon. Many thanx
This is Pepsi last year in my old smaller aqurium. How gorgeous and huge is she? x Also one of my bristlenosed plecs.
Wow! How beautiful!
Thank you, I think she is fab but I guess Im biased cos shes my baby. Yes I know Im mad!!
corys are my favorite too and she is beautiful. i have an albino.
