Smile L075 Para Pleco

Hi all.

I've decided I'm going to attempt to breed some para plecos.

I've got the chance to purchase a young group and I'm hoping for them to pair off.

Has anyone here had experience breeding para's that could give me some advice?

Thanks all

Not yet, still very early though, im planning on buying 2-3 more so i have around 6 and im just going to leave them to it.

They will be in a room which we dont use so im hoping the extra peace and quiet will work a treat.

Fingers crossed.

Talking L075 Pleco

Hi

Sorry only just seen the reply!

Still no action! but there slowly becoming more confident and are now eating really well!

I have 5

3 over 5 inch

2 over 3 inch

PH 7.5
GH a shockingly high 600

I've read that water hardness isint really any issue with these pleco's so fingers crossed.

How are you getting on? What parameters are you working with?
