Awww your comment just brought a little tear to my eye. can’t help but feel ‘mummy’ proud.Yeah, those look like Bristlenose. On the bright side, if they are breeding, you obviously take good care of your fish.
So true...... I have to think of another way to separate them. The babies are in a different tank. I have just a shrimp tank and another with just crayfish.Congrats on the babies! You know you are doing something right when your fish breed for you!
Bad news is...You will be overrun with fry very quickly if you keep the male and female together. Is that something you can deal with? I mean....we are talking the potential for 50+ babies every few weeks!
BN plecos are not the fastest growers. They require at least 2-3 months of grow out before they are big enough to sell or donate to the fish store. And they are MESSY!! they poop just as much as the adults.
For that reason It would be in the best interest of your main tank and its inhabitants to remove the babies and grow them out in a separate tank.
And whether they are in their own tank or not, you should be vaccuming the tank daily.
