L066 breeding log

Info on my Hypancistrus L066 King Tiger breeding project

Tank details
100L clear seal tank
Eheim 2224 external + difuser
Slate tank bottom
Lots of slate & caves
7.3PH
300ppm TDS
Temp 28-30C
15-25% daily water changes.
5 Adult L066, 2 male 3 females
9 Axelrodi cory & 2 Adolfi cory
Internal power head producing high tank flow
Bubble wand for good oxygen circulation

I started off with 14 L066 and over time reduced the group size untill i had a mature group i was happy with. They have been breeding for around 8-10 months now. Both males have spawned as have all 3 females. Usually they breed once every 3-6 weeks, clutches are quite large with upto 60 eggs on some occasions. They seem to be on a break at the moment as its been over 2 months since the last spawn but the males are showing signs again and all females are heavily gravid.

Attached pics show some of the young, the tank setup and some of the adults.
