Re: Silica Sand Good for Zebra Pleco?

I use silica pool filter sand in all of my tanks, never had an issue. Avoid the finer sands and you should be fine.

Re: 40B setup

Looks good, personally I would throw in a long thin bit of wood up front a few inches in front of the cave openings, give them something between them and you that you can still see in their caves around but they may feel a little more secure. I have like 4 cups of silica sand in the bottom of my 30g...

I feed the hikari carnivore pellets along with the occasional massivore pellet broken up. Earth worm sticks and spirulina sticks from time to time.

The male is proven, he came from a breeding tank, the female is not. Soooo She should only breed with the wild male who is in a cave that I can eas...
