    I have a 29-gallon community tank with 1 male cory and 2 female cores. One female has a big belly and is wider than the other and is the only one that hangs around with the male.
    I would really love to raise some baby corys in my 10 gallon, can someone tell me if she is pregnant???

    Hi @skip thompson try a cool water change (around 25%), that seems to entice my corys to spawn every time.

    Remove the eggs as soon as you can cause they will most likely eat them.

    Corydoras will lay eggs high up on glass or plants, gently nudge them into a container then you can hatch them in the other tank :)

    Yup, she is loaded with eggs. Lower the water level, feed lots of high protein food, preferably live food if you can, and do some water changes with cooler water. Then just keep an eye open for eggs

    yes, the only problem is if I lower the water level, the other fish will come farther down and mess with the corys
