Egg hatching & Fry rearing

Methods of egg hatching and fry rearing.

There are two basic methods I use for hatching Cory eggs, the choice will depend on the number of egg that have been laid.

When there are smaller batches of eggs laid I will collect them from the deposit sites, which is usually quite easy if they have been placed in spawning mops, Java moss, Java fern or any other removable objects. It is a little more difficult when the eggs have been deposited on the tank sides or in the corners. They are carefully rolled off into a small container positioned below the deposit site.
