Vince, I've never raised plecos but i would think of moving this cave to a maternity tank filled with water from this tank, no??? And I believe males raise the fry , correct??

so you are saying that vacumming the fry into their own tank is not a good idea? Ten gallon filled with this water and filter moved over is not a good idea. i know i will lose a few...

Shawn I move them to their own tank once their wigglers I just shake them out of the cave

Just keep filling it with water from the tank and pouring it out

Move the Male with the wigglers- pic up the cave and put it into another tank... The dad will defend them and when they leave the cave just catch him with a net put him into the original tank..I usually leave them for three weeks or so with the youngsters and within a week of moving the father back the whole process starts over again. (feed the Youngsters Zuccinni)

I would put a big net under the whole cave to remove it.. then gently put it into the new tank,.

Its probably not a good idea if you have it in a tank with gourami & tetras

Its a jack dempsey

as said in the other picture, could be true. Aquidens (blue acara) are know
Alexander Langer

wow, great colors, beautiful!
Alexander Langer

it's still small, but to me it seems as a blue acara is plausible. Wait unt
