I have bronze cories I purchased at the spring auction that seem to spawn frequently and I have a breeder box with cory fry starting to nibble biofilm and powdered food. At what point will they start nibbling on cory eggs? In other words, when do I need to get another breeder box?

The fry have such small mouths until about a month old that they cant eat the eggs. however, at that point they may be able to do a little damage to the fry once they hatch, so id say within two weeks is ok until they catch up at about a month or two, then the little ones will be big enough to not be viewed as food by the bigger ones...basically the rule with fish is if they can fit it in their mouth, they probably will eat it...
