I think they are albinos. I have 2 albino longfins and a regular albino in the tank as well as a few other types but albino is the only one that I have more than one of

Are the fry kept separately from the other corys?  Some adults love snacking on "catlets". :madrant

This is my first time with cory fry, Ive done a bit of research but am always up for advice if you have any!

What worked well for me is dropping in an almond leaf or 2 to the fry tank.  It serves several purposes, provides cover, breeding ground for infusoria, and helps condition the water.  Some say anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, betta people swear by them, my cory fry did well on them.  Daily water changes, I used a short length of rigid airline tubing at the end of a regular airline tubing to vacuum up mulm.  I did well with culturing microworms for food, I gut loaded them with spirulina powder, just an option if it's hard to come by baby brine shrimp.

You'll find it amazing when the fry literally morphs into tiny little replicas of their parents - maybe in 4-6 weeks, by that time they'll be pretty hardy.  Have fun!

I’ve bred (accidentally) albino cory cat fry - it was fun and they’re super easy to rear!

Bummer!  I fed mine little bits of a powdered fry food and that worked, but I still lost maybe a 1/3 and filled the rest down to about twenty by eight weeks.

Yea, I only ended up with about 4 hatching so it didn't seem to be a very good batch to begin with! Hopefully next time :)

Oh no!  They all died at the same time?  Were they fungused over?

With my breeding group, once they start laying, they lay like clockwork but usually during our winters with the rainy season.  Maybe you'll have more eggs in a few weeks?!

They died within 1-2 days of each other

 

Hopefully I'll get another chance soon. Though I'm happy to wait a while, I have Two QTs up and running atm so that's enough extra waterchanges for now lol

Wow I’m sorry your fry died I had a similar situation with guppies but they were older like 6 weeks so we were already attached

Thanks, sorry about your guppies!

They did lay eggs again but I have two QTs running right now and nowhere else to set them up so I had to just leave them be, most were stuck to the glass anyway.
