Well while looking at the tank yesterday noticed two real small cory babies.

    ;)

    So I guess were Cory eggs, both about 3/8 " long.

    Do not know if any more, but 2 better then none and as I never tried to raise them not bad I guess.

    I did take pics, but this Cannon camera, is not worth a darn on closeups with the light.

    That's awesome!!!

    As far as getting the shot goes, try increasing the light in the tank for the shoot only. If it is a DSLR you can buy extension tubes to make it possible to focus closer in for very little money. I usually shoot in rapid fire mode (5 shots per second) and move the camera slightly back and forth as it shoots. I do this because that close up the DOF is very short and it can be hard to get a focused shot. If I move it back and forth a tiny bit (like 1/8 inch) I usually get one that lands with the eye in focus.
