    Well looking at my tank yesterday morning I see a tiny fish looming close to the top of the water line. Being the age that I am I had to hurry and go find my seeing eye dogs (My reader glasses) and I run back to the tank hoping the little guy hadnt moved and low and behold there was now two there. having my glasses I was able to see they are bushynose pleco babys!! this morning once again I was looking, and better prepared with my glasses and found about twenty babys in the tank. I am so excited!! I will try to get a pic of the little guys but be wared my photo skills arent the best.

    thats awesome

    That brown long fin female you sent me spawned with my albino short fin about a week ago and I got a nice batch of babies out of it (I have also had my brown short fin spawn with the same albino male and my albino short fin female spawn with my short fin brown male this week, babies everywhere) I have since separated out the 2 long fins you sent me so hopefully they will spawn me some long fin babies.

    Awww..babies!! Congrats. I'm right with you on the reading glasses!! I fished a "baby" out of my tank not so long ago to only find after putting my glasses on it was just a small moneywort leaf.

    Nothing cuter than those wee bushy nose!:clap:

    Congrats on the spawn. I have spawned pretty much everything I've had except my plecos.
