Just a couple of quick shots of my Corydoras habrosus:



They've been pretty busy recently:



Just put them into a little container to hatch for now:



Will move them into a small tank when/if they hatch, can't put 'em in there yet or the RCS horde will eat them.

I always put corie eggs in with my cherries as they keep them clean of fungus, always had good hatches that way.

I've heard the same thing from other people overseas but not from people within Australia, not sure if we've just gotten a particularly carnivorous strain of RCS or something. I've seen my colony hunt down my spotted blue-eye eggs time and time again...they seem to sense the eggs when they're laid. Eggs don't even last 5 minutes buried deep in a clump of moss. I don't have any luck breeding any of my other fish if I don't remove (almost) all the RCS from the tank. Not just me either, seen several posts on local forums about RCS eating eggs here.

Can't say I've tried 'em with cory eggs before though - the eggs certainly harder than the other eggs I've seen them eat. Perhaps I'll drop a couple in and see if they go for it.

Nope, no luck - I think my RCS eat cory eggs too. Eggs seemed to last about an hour in the RCS tank.
