Todays activity in my tank

came home from work today to find that my Bronze Corys had been rather busy spawning again.
I run a 80 litre tank containing one weather loach (ten years old) approx. 8 inches long, 8 bronze corys six rainbow snails and about fifteen (most I've ever counted) Canadian river shrimps that were originally bought as live food for the loach (he ate the first lot but turned his nose up at the second lot so they became residents). I've transferred about 200 eggs to my spare 8 litre tank, the rest are now being devoured by the shrimps.

i'll try to update when I can

can't add any photos but a light shone against the side of the baby tank reveals at least several hundred if not a thousand baby corys.
when they get big enough to photo i'll post on here , they are approx. 1mm long at the moment

ok guys and ladies, any recommendations on feeding?
previously I've used a few drops of Interpet liquifry No2 although I've never had the amount of fry I have now
I know the eggs that didn't hatch will become food as well as fry that die

at what stage should I start to introduce catfish pellets
i'm moving apartments in two weeks as well which will shake things up a touch as
well

The best food for fry is infusoria. Google will tell you how to cultivate that. Microwroms are also useful as a next stage food - you can buy starter cultures from places like Ebay, and you'll also need a couple of plastic tubs, some instant porridge and a sachet of yeast.
Once they fry are big enough you can feed pulverised pellets - not the kind of catfish pellets that have a high veg/algae content as cories are not vegetarians, but a sinking pellet with a high meat/fish content. A small pestle and mortar is ideal for pulverising fish food to dust  :)
