Good article.  I still believe there is more info to be discovered/learned about the zebra pleco.  

 

I too have bred over a couple hundred of zebras from what I believe to be one pairing of w/c parents in a species only tank.  I've got a second tank of the F1 generation that I have been growing out for a couple of years now.  Some of which are over 3" in length.  

 

I've added more caves, they seem to like the small pinched caves I bought from a woman who makes them on the East Coast, USA - cichlid something - I can't find the site at the moment.  Currently I have 5 juvenile zebras who have claimed a cave each so I'm hoping that this generation will soon start breeding.  For me that would be a great sign of being able to bred the next generation, the next succession and that everything to this point hasn't just been the natural instinct/genetics/luck of just the w/c parents. 

 

As I learn more, I hope to share with everyone here too. Cheers.
