Gentlemen....if they were alone in the tank, I'd agree...but he has angels in there..they'll pick off the fry before he even sees them. Somethings gotta go....either move the rest..or move the dad/cave......and cover those filter intakes too.....

That's a great suggestion about recording all the tank parameters and procedures.....excellent.

-- Agreed. If you record all of the info, you can be the first published account of these fish being spawned in captivity; even if they are technically two different species. Plus, you'll be making a road map for future breeders of these fish.

Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable - if anything is excellent or praiseworthy - think about such things. Philippians 4:8

LOL.....that'll work too.....tiny BN fry can become chow real quick to bigger fish....the other thing about moving them, is confining them in a smaller area...easier for them to find food, and to do good sized water changes....good luck.... :P


oh, and look for something to cover those filter intakes.....or they'll get slurped up fast....you might even consider shutting a couple down, if you're removing the other fish??..it'll be less load then anyway....

I'm living in fear of changing ANYTHING....I might remove any fish but the male to another tank.

Congrat's...you should see wigglers, and dad fanning his butt off. I use a small flashlight to look into caves. If you really want this spawn....set up a 10 gal with water and filter media from the 'host' tank.....pull the PVC/ dad/ eggs and all and move to the 10 gal....after you see him release about half the spawn....shake out the rest and move dad/PVC back to the host tank. I feed finely crushed pellets/algae wafers,etc....you can take any algae covered rocks,etc and move in with them too...leave the light on longer to encourage algae growth.....thin sliced zucchini, blanched green beans, and other veggies.....they'll grow like weeds. I, also, use BN foods from Capt'n Bob.....'frenzy', 'egg foo yung', and others....look him up at the swap.....have fun, and good luck..

Hey....
If this is the male fanning....I'm assuming if these were normal fish (common plecos) somewhere in the near term something should happen no???
