Yay, cory fry! #1
Hey guys!
I'm pretty excited because last night I noticed 3 little peppered cory fry in my tank! I have moved them to a well aerated breeding chamber, and provided a small amount of crushed flakes and bloodworms for them.
I'm not entirely sure on how long they have been hatched, but I would say about a week max, 4 days min.
I've read that I should get Liquidfry, or something like that, but because this is my first time with fry I'm not entirely sure with what to do.
Any advice on where to go next would be much appreciated!
Thank you to anyone who helps me out!

Congrats on the fry!

From what i remember very finely crushed flake food should be okay. I also believe baby brine shrimp should be good for them too.

I dont have any personal experience with Liquifry myself so cant help you there.

Good luck with your new babies

Re: Yay, cory fry! #3
Liquifry is pretty easy tbh. You add 1 drop per gallon of tankwater. I'd still keep the crushed flakes on the menu too though. As long as it's finely crushed and pre-soaked first, it should be OK for the fry. Newly hatched brine shrimp is good for them too. I've had a lot of success with Sera's Artemia mix in the past.



Good luck with them
