Nice fish. I'm never sure of the sex of a male unless it has deleloped the spiney hairs on the body.

I would say your guesses are pretty good. It looks like you have both sexes. Any signs of breeding yet?

Just before Xmas one guy had his lady trapped in a cave for a day or so, but was just a dry run. Other than that nothing definite. I just gotta be patient.

Dave,
Patience is the key. I waited more than 4 years for my leopard frog plecos to breed.

There was already a batch from this group that went to BC that have spawned several times. When I got them from Brazil they were around the 2" mark TL. Fast growers that is for sure.

Love the macro shots! Rich, you got some extremely fertile fish!
How many addictions can I have without overload?

What do you think would be the best food to start these guys on?
I have some decapsulated brineshrimp eggs. Any pros or cons to these?
Any other good first foods?

Based on this article on PC, I'd think you're feeding them the correct food. http://www.planetcat...?article_id=241
