|A Tale of 5 Cory's|
by Helen & John McGuire
1 removed the parents back
to a 3' 0" tank but no joy, the eggs fungused
and I lost them. Now patience (lots of it) is the
name of this game so here we go again. This time
after 1 took the parents out and 1 put in fungicide
at the recommended dose and crossed my fingers and
waited for the eggs to hatch. I watched them and
saw the tiny little fry wriggle from the egg and
dive straight to the bottom of the tank and hide
in the gravel, until their yolk sac was absorbed.
After about three days 1 noticed they were free
swimming about the bottom of the tank scavenging
for food. (1 had removed the small power head when
the eggs started to hatch.)
