A nice surprise

Here was me thinking my Colombian zebra plecos (L129) were too small and too young to breed. I looked in one of the caves a week ago and a 6 cm young male had trapped a female. I thought you're a dreamer until two days later when he was fanning a batch of eggs

well here they are at weeks 5 and 6. They are now only 2 cm long which is pretty slow growing but they don't get that big.

The male ate his last batch of eggs as I spent to much time looking at them with a torch :)

He was on another batch within the week so I must have another breeding female which is a nice bonus.
