Default How long does it usually take for corys to lay eggs?

My cories might be spawning, so how long does it usually take for corys to lay eggs? Should I put the pair together in a breeding net?
29 gallon
3 mollies
2 black tetras
Marble hatchet
2 harlequin raspboras
Yoyo loach
3 Calico BNP

I now have no lack of plecos in my tank

PM me if you play Need for Speed

Proud to be in a gifted class.

Well, I had mine for years and they just beat eachother up. They were peppered corys, though. Dunno.

10 gallon setup:
1 Julii Cory

cories will lay a number of eggs on the glass or lift tubes or even heaters over the course of hours...if you wish to breed cories you will need to set up a separate tank for them...
NO.......a breeding net will not work...

if we ignore nature;maybe it will go away

10 gallon..nothing but air

10 gallon...just more air

10 gallon...stale air

just don't ask about the rest
