PostSubject: Bloat or Gravid?   Tue Apr 15, 2014 8:26 pm

Hey everyone,

I purchased a pair of Albino Bristlenose Pleco about a month ago, and the female and male hasn't bred yet and I've fed the female earthworm sticks for 2 - 3 days and I was hoping the would condition her but now her left side of her stomach is turning a bit yellow and I don't think its eggs.. If its bloat what should I do? If its not bloat how would i get them to breed faster?

if anyone could answer my questions I will be very pleased

Thanks,

UberWonton

Looks gravid to me mate, well getting there.

I would 100% stop with the protein rich foods though. That is a recipe for disaster!

Okay, I will try to feed more veggies, what kind of veggies could I feed them? I have been feeding them peas, and zucchini. I have 2 slate caves in there but I don't know if that's enough.. The female looks like shes trying to go into cave but then shes not interest.. I'm quite confused..  scratch
