Nice spawning. Not hard to raise once you get a spawning and a hatch.

Initial set up mixed RO with Tap water. Every two weeks water changes with RO only.

L183 fry are doing any good, one to two or 3 are died each day since last week. I have big group over 40 and down to 10

I'm certainly no expert but I'll offer my 2 cents worth...... if the fry are diminishing in their existing environment and food supply...... change it. Simplify it. Qt them in their own tank with their own water. Feed them one thing until they become stable. That way you have the most control on what parameters are affecting them. Just because the parents can handle the environment doesn't guarantee the fry can. Just a thought. Hope everything goes ok!

 Hi All,

 

Works and family are keeping me busy and don’t have time to update the post.

 

L333 group got bigger and crowded in a 72 gallon tank. Recently sold my profitable breeding group of L134 and moved L333 over to 120 gallon tank.

 

Here is Porto de Moz L333 new home.

 

Thanks.

Sorry to hear that :(. It is one pleco I have hard time of keeping. L184 is more hardy and will reproduce.
