    Hey Guys

    Just recently purchased got 5 bronze corries for my new 128l setup and I wanted to get some of your experiences on keeping these successfully. I've read loads of articles and have kept albinos before so I know a little bit, but would appreciate any do's and dont's to keep them happy.

    Its not an ideal setup as the tank its a tall tank and it doesn't have a sand substrate but rather Prodibio aqua soil. I'm currently feeding frozen bloodworms-fresh daphnia and sinking pellets. So far they have been active and happy and eating well. Anything I should know and any tips for getting them to breed?

    Hi,

    All you need it patience. And a cold front. And a large WC a day before the cold front - although this step isnt really required. If they are happy and healthy they will spawn as soon as the pressure drops. Look for eggs stuck in clumps on the glass / heater / anywhere they want to stick them really.

    Thank you so much. I hope they are happy enough to spawn. Any tips or issues with keeping them? diet/environment?

    None that I am aware of. Bronze cories are one of the easier species to keep and breed. I am sure they will spawn for you

    Yes the bronzes seem to be robust. A 20% cool water change seems to trigger spawning pretty reliably, once they’re in breeding condition. I stopped doing that now that the apistos are in the same tank, and the corys haven’t spawned since.

    Far as I know, they're the same species as the albino cories, so if you've kept the albinos before, it should be very much the same.:thumbup:

    I was a bit worried about keeping corries on a planted substrate not sand as I'm worried about their barbels being worn down whilst they dig in the substrate. Also the height of the tank....they have a long way to travel to the surface where the flow is strongest... not sure if thats ok for them

    I accidentally bred some panda cories about a year ago on aquasoil without any issues. Their barbels were totally fine. I think it's more related to general health than necessarily the substrate. As for the height - also not a problem. I've seen them go bombing up and down the full height of a 80cm high tank without a worry in the world. I'd try some other live foods too. Mine really liked mosquito larvae

    Only think they need to mature a bit.

    They are looking awesome, healthy and happy

    I had the weirdest thing happen I cleaned my tank I had 4 Corys & today I only have 3, my tank is sealed so no jumping out, I didn’t find the Cory in my dirty water buckets or between my plants so sometimes Cory's can be just like Houdini just poof disappear, not even a body :( My tank is a community tank & they all live in harmony so I’m puzzled.

    Hi. I have 10 Corydoras in my 350L tank. It is a good 900mm swim to the top and they are 100% fine and loving it. They are all over the place. They do seem to love any driftwood and hardscape items in the tank to explore and eat off. Find my Sterbai Corydoras to be super active. I feed loads of frozen foods and Hikari sinking wafers. They are relatively easy to spawn if fed well and are mature enough.
    Good video series to look at if you are keen on breeding your bronze Corydoras.[​IMG]
