A few weeks ago we noticed that our corydoras had spawned a bunch of eggs all over the aquarium. Over a few days all the eggs went away and we never saw any baby fish.
We had more or less forgotten that the fish had laid eggs. Yeserday, as she observed into the aquarium, Sophia let out a shout, “a baby!” she exclaimed. I had a look and sure enough, this little guy was swimming around in there looking for food.
This tiny baby corydora is just 1 cm long. We haven’t spotted any others, so we think it’s the sole survivor of all the eggs we saw a few weeks ago.
The crazy part is, that today, the big fat mamma corydora started spawning again. Here are a few.
