Corydoras fry pics

Recommended Posts

Here are a few pics I took recently of the Corydoras fry I have in the fishroom currently.

It's interesting to compare the size of fry at hatching. It has no correlation to adult fish size. Generally speaking long nose corys have smaller eggs.

@KillieOrCory cute little fry you have there. Are you going to take progressive shots as they get bigger?

Nice. I currently have some panda and pygmaeus fry growing out ranging between 1-4 weeks.

Hastatus and pygmaeus fry look so similar.

Do you have any duplicareus?

I am waiting for my pygmaeus and habrosus to spawn as well to compare.

I don't have any duplicareus at the moment. Hopefully I am getting some in a week or two.

Nice @KillieOrCory ! Always have corys in my planted tanks, what are the ideal water parameters for breeding corys?

      I have decided to get a few more shrimp to create more tanks similar to the one I had a few years back in the video below.
      This 4 foot tank had a lot of corys and I had a population explosion of shrimps. Currently, I set one up with yellow cherries and another with orange rillis. Going to be looking for more shrimp when it starts to warm up a bit in Canberra.

      Indeed a good video. Except for his spelling of Desolved in TDS (should be Dissolved) I could not have done any better.

      Yes of course! Forgot about high Nitrates, and of course illness. But we probably need to clarify "low temps" for anyone new to the hobby. Winter months can see water temps fall below the shrimp's preferred temp range. It might not be detrimental to their health but it does slow their metabolism down. The remedy for low temps isn't to just give them high temps either, it needs to be within their ideal preferred range for that specific shrimp, eg Neo Caridina or Caridina or Sulawesi. I have known some people to have shrimp (cherries) survive our Australian winter out in ponds. So they can tolerate fairly low temps for an extended period.

      Also No3 , low Temp , and bacteria infections.

      This is a very good video on the basics if you are new to shrimps. It is called 'How to breed shrimp', not sure why as it is generally everything and a very good  and clear video guide?.

      I find the wrong water parameters for the type of shrimp to be a big factor for lethargic shrimp. It's usually the first sign that something is not right. Any measurable amount of Ammonia, can also cause this behaviour.  Moulting is also a big factor in shrimps being inactive. Right before and right after the moult they hide and usually don't move. The moulting process is very strenuous on the shrimp, and I find protein rich foods (eg bloodworms) helps a ton.
