PostSubject: excess pleco eggs. Help needed.   Wed May 02, 2012 11:18 pm

I have a male ABN that is always sitting on clumps of eggs-have two females in with him. This time he had two bunches of eggs both of which are separated from the cave-one has been kicked out or pushed out by a overeager female--likely close to 75+ eggs all orange and nice looking. The other when I lifted his cave was loose also but is farther in so should stay in.

I was wondering if it would stress my male to remove both clutches of eggs?

I already have 100+ fry in the tank most being close to 1". They love to spend time with the male in his cave and he lets them.
Most likely the cories I have in the tank may eventually discover that the eggs are food, or the eggs may hatch.

Does anyone every feed other fish with pleco eggs?

Overpopulation is my biggest problem ugg, I would suggest pulling the females out if you have another tank... or try trading your current fry to lfs. I am sticking to one female for my male to avoid this situation... until I can get more tanks heh

But I'm sure many fish would enjoy some eggs for dinner if you are in a bind...

Just an update. The rest of the albino adults got some protein and slowly ate the eggs left in the tank. So don't have to worry for a little while about more babies.
The cories may have also had a snack but didn't actually see them eat any.
