frozen or freeze dried bbs's for 2 or 3 day old peppered coriy babies?

What would be easier or better to feed my 2 day old cory babies? I really want a few to live this time there is about 25 of them, so I really want to start them going strong! I have to go to the next town over ( 3 different ways, all pretty equal in distance and size) so I would like some help before I go! Thanks if you can help I have looked everywhere, but now I cant remember where I saw the info, oops!

Frozen is better as freeze dried foods can cause bloating if they're not thoroughly soaked before feeding, you can also use a very finely crushed catfish pellet

I've used Hikari first bites in the past, it's ok for the first week or so but then move on to bbs & finely grind the pellets, corys get little to no nutrition from algae wafers so don't use those.

Its best to feed frozen baby brine shrimp but don't feed until the egg sac is fully absorbed. Also need to do water changes daily for baby cories especially after feeding.

SUCCESS IS MEASURED BY YEARS, NOT MONTHS!!!
220 Tank build + 62 other tanks.

To insure survival of baby corys do not overclean tank. Baby corys hide in the mulm in the bottom of the tank until they are big enough not to be threatened by their parents.
25 is a low spawning number. Corys breed best at a ratio of 4 males to each female and she should lay a hundred to a hundred fifty eggs. Depending on your males ten to twenty percent may not be fertile. Eggs will be attached to lift tubes, glass, ornaments and plants. Once they hatch they will go straight to the bottom and hide. At this point circulation to keep up oxygenation is a concern. At about one centimeter you will see them out and about and they will like small adults. Newly hatched they look like tadpoles developing legs. My survival rate for hatches is 95%.

Re: frozen or freeze dried bbs's for 2 or 3 day old peppered coriy babies?

Hi ya'all I read somewhere that u can put some kind of tree leaves in with the baby cories, I believe it is oak. does anyone no anything about this? Don't want to put anything in the tank that shouldn't be there! lol Also is there a site or page where I can see pics of plants that can go into tanks? Like some wild growing plants that grow by creeks? thanks if anyone can help!

Yes you can use some leaves in your tank, oak & beech are amongst those that are safe.
They have to be fully dead so there's no sap left in them, not just dried leaves.
If you're collecting them & not buying them then be careful where you collect them from, don't collect from roadsides or where they could be fouled on from dogs or around industrial areas where there's pollution.

I meant they have to be brown dead leaves that have fallen or are about to fall from the tree, you can't use any that are still green & dry them
