So this is the second batch of pleco babies that I've gotten, when I was first looking to see how many eggs there were, I counted 20-30 eggs. Now the babies have gotten more mature and I can only count three. Yesterday they left the cave. Any reason why there are so few babies? Did the dad eat them? Help!!

UPDATE: I found all 3 babies, but there are no more. I looked back at some images of the egg sacs, and there were a lot!

Any other fish in the tank?

Are you doing anything to protect the filter intake?

Yes, it is a sponge. No other fish.
