Default Sterbs are Spawning

A couple of my Sterbai corys are spawning and doing nifty snuffling motions, and I saw some eggs! They were promptly eaten by another Sterb. Neat! It's the first spawning I've outright witnessed

Awesome! What do you feed and what temperature do you keep them at?

They are a warmer water cory. I have some but have never tried to spawn them. Pics please!

I wasn't expecting it, although I suppose a few have been getting plump! I did a pretty big water change last week when I switched my tank from gravel to sand.

The tank is at 80F and they are eating hikari sinking pellets, brine shrimp, and whatever nls pellets that escape the upper dwellers.

It's too bad they aren't likely to be successful fry!

Great news !
I have Sterbi and they spawn often - I have saved a few eggs and raised them to fry!
