"Our cories breed like mad! We started with a core group of 13 wee piggies, and they started chasing at about a yr from then. Their 'herdlike' living structure, dominated by the two largest 'sows', falls to pieces during mating season (which seems to be all the time nowadays). The males swarm/chase whomever's in heat all over the tank, till she find a tight hiding spot, pops out a few eggs to her fins, and dashes out of hiding to lay. Alas, there's no privacy, the lads are on her! Another mad dash, and some eggs are quickly and surreptisciously deposited under leaves, against the filter pipe, on rock edges, hard to reach walls, etc. We never expected a litter of piglets; the other pigs have learned to be opportunistic feeders and the tank also contains a 'gourmet-loving' longfin koi angel, and a 10" plec who guarantees to clean all but the best hidden eggs. During a filter change, my husband came running from the bathtub, where he'd been cleaning the filter, holding his hands out in front of him, yelling blue murder. I expected to see blood and he opened his hands to reveal two gelatinous pink babies. They'd been sucked into the filter, lived in the crawlspace at the bottom of the eheim, survived the filterwater dump thru the bottom spigot, and a few terrified and chancy moments on the bottom of the tub in order to pull off their Great Escape. My husband and I regularly do our part now in the 'resistance'! Spec: 50G Eheim 2217, changed every 2-3 mos 50% h20-x weekly, pH 6.4 avg, 80F 30 bulb 12hr on/off live/fake foliage mix, brown gravel/sand substrate mix wood/stone decos (lots of crevices) The Connells "
