|Subject: Treatment for egg block???????? Fri Apr 12, 2013 1:03 am|| |
I have a buddy that I got into breeding bn plecos, and he has a trio that has breed twice now, and one of the females has dropped for the third time, and the other female is hugely gravid but not dropping eggs. Both females spawn at the same time everytime, and now she is huge, but not dropping. It's not bloat, as she is obviously gravid, plus eating and acting normal. He asked me if I knew what it was, and I'm positive that it is egg block. Is there a treatment for egg block? I can't find any info anywhere on egg block.

I don't think there's a problem. Probably she wasn't in the mood. Remember that in the nature they don't spawn all-year-round every couple weeks.

Females can carry eggs for months.Unless she is acting like she is ill then there isnt a problem.She will eventualy lay them or reabsorb them.She may even carry them for a few more months.There is nothing to worry about.
