What I Found During Feeding Last Night...

I have two bristlenose plecos in my main 55 gallon tank. I haven't seen more than the tail of my albino male for awhile now. I see some extra movement and I find they had babies!
Dad is an albino and mom is a normal brown with white tips on her tail. They had babies inside one of my pieces of driftwood. They're hard to picture, but i've seen at least 6 at one time.
Picture time.

Bristlenose are the most prolific breeders of aquarium kept catfish (possibly only matches by cory, but bn protect the eggs and tiny fry so better survival rate). Be sure to set up a deal with a LFS for your bn babies or sell/donate them to others. As long as the parents are in there they will continue to breed and make more. The bioload can overload your filtration and BB (beneficial bacteria) over time if you leave them all in (can easily end up with over 200 plecos).

Unfortunately, I saw one of the babies get eaten today by one of the female bettas. I got out as many as I could and placed them in a hang over tank that feeds the same water. There must have been at least two batches in there.
I have about fifty seperated. I only managed to get 3 of the larger fry saw two others out but hiding in the tank. Crossing my fingers.
