Hi Ollie,

Very nice looking and a good idea to get a bunch of them. They will look brill!. Not a lot as you say on breeding them but the usual parameters for Cory breeding will do. There is a spawning report from Ian Fuller(aka coryman)in his breeding Corydoradine book where the Temp. was 74f and a high alkaline p.H. of 7.5 but I would guess that if you keep it up to neutral you should be all right. They laid there eggs on the front glass and his community tank was heavily planted. He was feeding the parents flake, live foods such as bloodworm, tubifex and daphnia but you could replace them with frozen. He also fed chopped earthworms once a week.
