Last Friday was a cold and snowy day with a storm front moving through the area. As the temperatures dropped, I thought I’d better drained down my rain water collection system to keep it from freezing up. Pumping the cold water into the fish room I thought it might be a good time to give the Albino Cories a cold water change to see what would happen.
Most of the species in the genus of Corydoras catfish can often be triggered to spawn with a large water change using cooler water.

Here is one of the first fry to be just about ready to free swim. It has swam up from the tank bottom and is resting on a single strand of java moss.
