Re: Trapping and how long

I keep the lights off on my tank for most of the day. My mated pair have been breeding continuously for well over a year now. I've noticed that the female comes around to the cave, they may be together for a day or more after which she leaves, then she comes back to drop her eggs, which you can see ...

Re: Cannot write replies

In addition I have two emails in my outbox that do not appear to have been sent but stuck in limbo - they have not moved to my ...

Re: At what size?

Hi, I think you are okay to add a juvi to the 40 gallon tank. As long as they can hide under the slate rocks or in some type of crevice they will be fine but you might be surprised to see them all hanging out together. My group has shown no aggression towards one another and my tank is full of babie...

Re: Method in raising zebra fry.

I recommend leaving them with their parents in the one tank. In nature they would not be separated but co-exist. I have 7 adults with god knows how many babies (60+) in a 72 gallon tank and they are all doing awesome. I have also moved 18 assorted sized fry to a new 28 gallon tank and they seem to b...

Re: Breeding Project L046

Hi Doug, Well done. Are your zebras set up in their own tank or do you have them in a tank with other fish and if so what kind? I have a species tank of zebra plecos and 1 lone shrimp. Just curious if any of the zebra breeders have success with just a species tank or sharing the tank with other fish...

Re: At what size?

Hi, I have a 70 gallon tank with 6 adult zebra plecos of which I'm sure there is one male breeding with either one or two females. They have been breeding non-stop since March of 2012. All the fry are in the same tank mingling with the adults and appear to be doing just fine. In fact there is an adu...

Re: Rio Xingu biotope

20120203_0028.JPG Thank you for posting pictures of your tank setup - I really liked the look of yours and one other I saw and modeled my newest 75 gallon zebra pleco species tank after both. It is my first time using sand, I went with a fine black sand used for hermit crabs, bought some slate and ...

Re: BULLDOG Fry- Genetic Or Environmental

I was going to purchase two F1 zebra plecos but when I looked at them they seemed to have a mild case of snub nose. I have two wild caught zebras and have set up a 75 gallon species tank just for them with the hopes of getting more and breeding them. Can everyone confirm that my initial diagnosis of...
