    Just pulled out from dad's cave. Think there are about 42-45 eggs, most of them hatched, but some are still in the midst. Just one day old!! :dance:

    Posted pics for all interested. I love these guys!! They are so cute. My 2nd successful batch, pretty much sold out of the 1st batch. Should have some available by next Spring.

    Great news about the spawn. What conditions did you keep them in? What did you feed them?

    1 week old

    Thanks guys.... I didn't realize there were responses to this post, for some reason I didnt get any notification eventhough it is set up! Oh well. Anyway, here's another update. They are about a week old now. I counted a grand total of 55 babies, much much bigger than the last spawn. Although 1 isn't doing so great, might be a runt, the yolk sac looks a little protruded and its having some difficulty staying in balance. I'm going to keep an eye on that one.

    The rest of the 54 are doing great, already zipping around in the little fry tank, super active. I don't really do anything fancy to get the adults to spawn, just weekly water changes. My tank is full of drift wood though, and I occasionally throw in a couple of indian almond leaves, that's it. Ph is about 7.4 and temps 82.

    Yup, they will be for sale next Spring. Much as I would like to, there is no way I can keep that many for myself! :) I kept a few from the last batch, they are looking gorgeous. (Pic of a juvie from last batch is attached). By the way...the nice looking pics is thanks to my new camera...I am using a Canon T2i!! :)

    Since you guys are so kind and would like updates, I will continue to do so, so everyone can enjoy the growth progression. These are truly my fav plecos :)

    Yep, I would love to be able to continue to get updates on these. Thought about getting them several years ago, but didn't. I was interested in your last batch and then saw the L046 thread on here and was going to get those instead. Got side tracked and got nothing, which in hindsight might have been a good thing.

    How long does it take for them to reach sexual maturity? I would love to try breeding them. Just some lovely plecos.

    How many of the adults do you keep, and what size tank do you have them in? I have a 20 long right now and am wondering if that would be a big enough tank.

    Keep the pics and the updates coming.
