My pair of 183's have given me some babies Smile .
The first lot of eggs were kicked out without me realising. This is their secong go and so far (apart from the 5 that are in a fry saver that were kicked out just as they were hatching) so good.
I can't wait to see them grow up and start colouring up. (fingers crossed)

Thanks everyone.
We're down to 4 in the fry saver but the daddy is still with the others in the cave.
They're starting to darken up. Can't wait to see how these grow on.

PostSubject: a big wowser for the new L183 babies and fry...   Fri Dec 03, 2010 3:52 pm

Starlight pleco's can be beautiful in the right light... santa

I know some friends that keep them in an all out dark aquarium (i.e. they never put the light on) not sure how successful that is to breeding
or keeping them.....

I may be confused but I could have sworn some one told me a starlight grows upto 10inches though afterwards when I checked online
most reputable sights advised about 3.9-4.5 inches... hmmmmm scratch

now I am left dazed and confused as I could have sworn they showed me one which was much bigger, so I am now wondering if
they had one of their cat fish mis identified.... lol

I like the starlight as they seem to be like a L071 peppermint with the white sparkles, though that is where the resemblance stays
as the L183 gets a white seam occasionally I do believe... though could be corrected again...lol


congratulations on your new off spring,
hope they give you many years of fish keeping pleasure Smile

Sorry it's taken so long to reply and upload some pics. We had our first baby just before Christmas, so all been a bit manic.
Well, from the first lot i i found another 2 in the tank, but lost one so have 5 left that are now about an inch and half. I also have another 8 from just before Christmas. They laid another load on Monday, but unfortunately i must have disturbed them, and they kicked the lot of them. Put them in the fry saver, but they're all gone bad. Why do you never have any Methelyne Blue when you need it! Anyway, here's some pics of a couple of the survivors of the second lot.

some nice pics, do they keep the white on their fins? it looks lovely Very Happy
i would love to have a go at breeding these, would you consider putting a post on what the water conditions are in your tank to get them to breed and how you trigger the spawn? this would be great.

Yes they do keep the white on their fins. I have a pair in my main tank and they look ace,
My water params are pH of 6.5 at a temp of 82. The TDS is around 30 each time they've spawned. There hasn't really been an obvious trigger yet. Hopefully with a few more spawns, i will pick up on one. I'll keep rcording everything, and see what i find.I have another pair that have spawned twice, but the male kicked the eggs out each time. Trying them with rain water and HMA instead of the RO and HMA i use with the others, just to see how they go.
I've got quite a few people wanting the babies off me, but i want to keep them all haha

defintely not a stupid question. i have asked the same when i started out keeping discus. RO is Reverse Osmosis, HMA is Heavy Metals Axe and TDS is Total Dissolved Solids.
