Angelfish and Corydoras fry

26 Aug

These baby fish are at a friend’s house. He’s an expert Angelfish breeder who also bought some Peppered Corydoras in the hopes of spawning them in the future.
The future came fast. His Cories grew like mad, the females are the biggest fattest things you can imagine, and they are spawning all of the time. He has hundreds of babies and more to come.
Notice this neat little system he uses to get the babies started in life. He has them in glass mason jars that are floating in a 5-gallon fish tank. This way, he only needs the single heater in the aquarium. He drops an airline into each jar, makes frequent water changes, and feeds them live baby Brine Shrimp.

In this next picture you can see some baby Angelfish, too.

I should have photographed his homemade Brine Shrimp hatchery. He decapsulates the shrimp eggs and staggers their hatching to ensure a constant supply for all of the babies. Sounds like a future blog post if he doesn’t mind!
