Hello everyone,
I have been in this hobby for quite a long time. I started with discus tanks to fresh water community and to cichlids, but this is my very first experience of raising plecos and also my very first post in forum. I used to think plecos were uninteresting since they're always hiding into the rocks or driftwoods. It was until I got a young group L333 (porto de moz) from a friend a year and half ago when I actually started to get interested and getting hook big time since then.
I have obtained a more variety of plecos including L134, Calico long fin, super red long fin and recently pick up L144 long fin.
 
Let start with group of 4 (1M, 3F) L333 porto de moz; the male is fantastic to take a good care to all the females. So far, they are breeding successfully and tank population is going up over 30's from 1" to 3".


Here is fry in the tumblers.

Thanks Charlie, to raising L-333 fry is fairly easy, but get them spawn is challenged

Hi All

 

 
As promised, here is the L134 and this is the first time they are bred for me.
The total is 19 fully hatched and 17 wigglers from two different males.

Appreciate for comments, consider myself very lucky. Both groups of L134 and L333 are breed for me in a short time. I didn't expect the L134 group is spawn within a year or two.

Are you using RO water or straight tap water?

Hi Charles,
No RO water, I aged water one week before the water change. They are in 72 gallon and bare bottom with lots of different caves on the high level.

I find that is easy for me to do vacuum and the food will not stick between the caves.

Here is my setup.

Nicely set up. It sure makes keeping a tank clean easier.

Just quick updated these bad boys. They are growing quickly and Dad already trapped another one in the cave last night.

Cross my fingers and I will leave the fry this time with mom/dad unless they are not listening to dad and get kicked out :).
