PostSubject: Pleco Kicking out eggs every night   Sun Mar 30, 2014 2:38 pm

Hello,

Recently I had some plecos breed for me, as this is my first time breeding plecos I have a few questions regarding some of the behavior I'm seeing.

First off the basics.... my water quality and tests are all fine, there is 3 fish in the tank where this is happening, 2 females and 1 male pleco as well as a ton of snails.

Basically what is happening is my plecos bred on the 27th and during the first 24 hours I swear the male kicked out the female 4-5 times and she kept coming back... no clue why but I just went with it and now she seems to be staying out of the cave completely like I expected at the start.

The problem is that since the 27th every morning when I wake up the male has kicked out a batch of eggs, is there a reason hes doing this or is it simply because hes a new father and is unsure about what to do?

Today I made a egg tumbler and am going to start putting the kicked out eggs in there but still I'm curious as to why this is happening.

Thanks.

Well I dont need to worry about him kicking more eggs out, all the eggs left in the cave have hatched.

Id still like to know why he was doing it though so I know for future reference.

Thanks

Lots of reasons that the eggs can be kicked out ranging from water quality issues, in experienced mum/dad or even he just didnt feel like it. It often takes a new pair a few tries to get it right. Nothing out of the ordinary
