How many tanks? how big tanks? Etc. Some plecs like the L002s like more wood in they're diet, L134s can tolerate a bit more protein. I wouldn't keep breeding bn with adult plecs as there would be competition for caves. So maybe is go for trio, pair commons and pair albinos own tanks and rest in they're own tank... Hard to say without more info

yeah, i think we need a bit more info Smile

As Kfenk said there are some differing needs there that you need to consider. You would be looking at a large tank, I would be suggesting at least a 6ft tank with that lot. They are all bottom dwelling fish and need their own space.

Not to mention you will need a large filter to deal with all the poo Very Happy
