OK well iv recently decided on moving from bn breeding to dwarf pleco breeding. A month ago i purchased a colony of 6x L202 plecos as stage one of my breeding plan (they were cheap so i jumped at the chance quick smart lol) Now i say stage one as i was going to start trying to breed them once i moved house (didnt end up moving in the end
) then a week ago i spotted some more plecos for sale and couldnt resist (even tho im not ready to house them
) They are a breeding pair of L333 plecos (nice and big at 12cm too!) and a young pair of L134 plecos that have apparently spawned but the male booted the eggs. I got them this week end, so in the 4ft with the L202s they went. OK so thats the plecos sorted.
Now the tank. My 3ft tank that was previously a shrimp tank was occupied by a pair of peacock cichlids as the dominant ones in my aquaone tank were too aggressive for them. But i have since moved them back into the aqua one. The 3ft is currently still running with a couple cherry shrimp (god knows how they survived with the peacocks in there) and a heap of trumpet snails (damn things!). What i need to do now is remove the beach sand x shell grit sand out of the tank and replace with the river sand i purchased. I have cleaned the river sand and its ready to go into the 3ft. Once i clean out the beach sand i will start taking pictures to show the progress.
