Nice work. Believe it or not is is quite common for people who acquire a group of plecos to have them spawn not long after bringing them home. This is usually due to the fact that the parameters of the new tank are sufficiently different from the tank from which they came, to trigger them. Seasonal spawners seem to thrive on change.

Good luck with them and i hope they keep going for you for a while. You never know when they will decide to take a break nor how long it might last.
What makes the common person uncommon is common sense.

Thanks, i was shocked it was 15 zebs first spawn a few weeks after he got 14 new and the male "next door" got 5 so in 8 weeks i got 31 healthy zebras in my grow out tank:) i hope they continue breeding for a wile, Love that feeling when you check your caves and you see a clutch of eggs.
