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?

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.

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
