|Subject: leopard pleco... and breeding ? Tue Dec 21, 2010 3:11 am|| |
sold my breeding pair a while back when down sizing on tanks ready for my move,
now I am thinking I should have kept them....lol....
breeding them was not too difiicult, though I could have been lucky at the time... I had three spawns in the 9 months I kept them...
sold the fry to the local fish stores... I got alot of my advice about them off planet catfish and also...
also this helped me too
the fishlore gave me more advice about blackwater fish when i was first getting into catfish and also Leopards...
this kinda made me wonder why some people find it hard to breed these fish, while others find it easy..
may be that is why it is such a wonderful hobby......
just keep us posted...
I will try to get a picture up of the tank I had mine in, though I have more bristlenose in the tank now,
the only thing I did notice at the time is they can become territorial at a young age, or mine did...
Must admit they matured quicker than my other species of catfish too, which was surprising since I now have smaller aquariums...
good luck and add me as a friend if you want more specific help...
