every 4 weeks for a pair is quite a turnover.... especially with approx 15 eggs each time.... is there any way you could seperate them for a few extra weeks and see what happens then?

Reading up and searching forums before you ask questions WILL answer them for you... and you'll be better prepared for looking after your fish.
(all the ones you are posting on contain the answers you are looking for)

Any pleco should not be fed one food alone - a varied diet is a good diet!

I'd agree with Barbie on this one - 2.5cm SL is what i go on (1") but that excludes the tail... got to be about 3 - 3.5 CM total length.

I may re home smaller if i know where they are going...

Its an old thread from when we got our zebs...

I figured I'd update it now that I know for sure what I ended up with...

I'll double check the markings and confirm which 2 are female when I overhaul the tank soon :)

update...

The alpha male is spoilt for choice.... he's had 2 different fish trapped over the last day and a bit :D :D

I had a bit of a rummage about in their tank though tonight - So I may have upset them for a couple of days... fingers crossed for a double spawn :)
