I am now getting fairly regular spawnings from one of my groups of C. weitzmani. I have yet to witness the event even after many hours of watching. They are definitely do it in the dark types and the do not produce very many eggs, unless there is a fair amount of egg predation and the fact that they are laying at night it's almost impossible to tell. I now have three broods 12, 8 and 21 hopefully they will become more prolific as time goes by.

What would you say the size of the eggs are Ian, or have the fry just appeared ?

The eggs are 1.8 mm diameter. the one group are obviously spawning unobserved regularly because there are one or two fry of differing ages in the breeding tank.

Very interesting:-) I read all I can find on this spec. of Cory now.

I'm about to buy a group of these Corys myself later this week, and I'm now searching around the internet for info about the best possible care for them. Of course I would like to try to breed them some time in the future.
The fish I'm about to buy is wild caught from Peru, and I would like to give them the best care after all transport stress.

Is there anything specific I should have in mind? Subdued lightning usually helps stressed out fishes, but anything else beside lots of cover so they feel safe?

Previously I've only spawned my Corydoras sterbai (3 times) and my Corydoras adolfoi (they've spawned almost 40 times....!!)
