    My peppered corries have spawned quite a few times in the past, but these were small spawns. Since adding them to my Jebo R338 they haven spawned untill this week.firstly I keep a trio ofpeppered corries(2 females1male) the tank was @ 24'C and I changed the temp to 26'C and this induced spawning. I managed to collect about 50+ eggs and I put them in a 5L glass tank with java moss and an airstone. Still no hatchlings. Have a small corry from a previous batch that's doing well, but I descovered him while emptying my old tank. This thread is created to show how I induced my corrydoras into spawning. Now I need advice on hatching the eggs.

    Hope you have loads of tanks if you want to start with cories. How many days ago were the eggs laid? You will need excellent water quality to hatch the eggs and raise the fry.

    I think the eggs were laid on wednesday. I have a couple of tanks outside ia could use. I keep the water clean in the tank where the eggs are. Raising fry is not my problem, its getting the eggs to hatch.

    Actually it is the other way around. Getting eggs to hatch is easy. Raising the fry is another story.
    The eggs will probably hatch today if they are fertile.

    Yep, egg hatching happens thanks to mother nature.
    Then the balancing act starts.
    Raised hundreds (mainly bronze, but now I am starting to get albinos, pandas and false bandits as well).
    This morning I moved all my Sterbai into separate tank, hoping to get those to breed too.
    Peppers will be next to move to their tank .....

    Take AquaS advise, she helped me a lot in the beginning.

    Thanks man, hopefully they are. Had no trouble raising the fry last time. Used a bare borrom tank and made a paste out of dophin algea waffers. Also had loads of java moss in. No heater and just an airstone, daily water changes as well.
