My Bristlenose Plecos finally spawned today I've seen the Female Common bristlenose pleco trying to get into the terracotta cave with my Male Albino bristlenose pleco yesterday and this morning when I was getting ready to go to school I've seen her try to get in too and when i came back from school I've seen her trying to go in but then the male is already fanning a clutch of eggs :hornytoro: and the 1st and 2nd picture is my male watching the eggs.:grinder: The 3rd picture is my female common bristlenose pleco waiting in the terracotta cave before the spawn.:hornytoro:

The aquarium strains of common bushynose are the easiest to spawn and the best to start with.

The female today went back inside and starting nomming on the eggs she ate about 3-5 eggs.. Is that a normal behavior? She's so big that the male can't even scare her out. LOL But I scared her out should I take the egg before it happens again or catch her out or something?

I'd move her if anything I dont pay enough attention to mine to know if she does it but my male has a spot where once hes stuck himself in nothing can get past him and I cant even get him out
