Dwarf corydoras don’t eat their own or other fish’s eggs or fry.
Do all fish eat their babies?
Summary: Many animals go to great lengths to ensure the survival of their offspring – yet some species actually eat some or all of their babies. There is not always an obvious explanation – like a food shortage – for such filial cannibalism.
What type of fish eat their babies?
Raising kids is hard work. Male blenny fish sometimes eat their babies if they think they’re not worth the effort and want a better batch. The barred-chin blenny (Rhabdoblennius nitidus), a fish found in Asia, has an unusual parenting arrangement.
Will baby fish survive in my tank?
Not necessarily. Many fish breed very easily and produce great numbers of offspring, simply because very few will survive to adulthood. The more fish in your tank, the more you will need to feed them, the more feces they will produce and the harder your filtration system will have to work.
Do fish eat their own poop?
Do fish eat poop? They might, but they probably don’t. You may sometimes see a fish nibble on poop from other fish, and fish do have a tendency to eat whatever they see floating in the water column – but they also have a tendency to spit non-food items back out (including poop).
Do female fish need male fish to have babies?
Freshwater and saltwater fish are no exception. Much like many other animals, most fish require both a male and a female to create new life; however some fish are asexual and can reproduce alone.
