If it's about fish in general, or it's a little bit random, then this is the place to post it.

I've bred a couple of different ancistrus species in different set ups and IMO/E as long as you have a couple who are ready to breed and they like each other they will breed! LMAO! Then you try stopping them! I've kept many adults in different set ups and swapped and changed but yet to find the secret to be honest! When they're happy they'll breed esp following a cold water change!

I've got one female Claro who is fit to burst atm and the male is more than ready but she won't budge, I don't encourage my plecs to breed atm but in the past changing tanks has encouraged them, one pair bred within 15 minutes of being introduced to each other! :shock: They had been kept apart for a couple of months and conditioned ready for their meeting, they didn't even make it to the cave, the eggs were laid on the bare bottom of the tank! They were scooped up into a breeding trap and all survived!
