He Did It Again....

My male BN pleco has made himself scarce the last couple weeks so I was starting to worry but I caught a glimpse every now and then so I didn't check on him. Then the crazy idea popped into my head that "what if the baby plec in there with him was a female and had reached sexual maturity?" I had assumed the little one was a male because my boy was pretty agressive towards it. This thought scared me into checking and what do I find? Babies. At least 20 of them. I don't know what to do. I'm not happy about it because I've already got too many plecos, and I'm kinda mad I didn't get off my lazy butt and get the little pleco out of there sooner. But...more babies.....now what? Argh, just needed to share.

I cant believe you get so many babies at one go. I mean I can but..mine only delivered a few :( ! 6 I think..and I'd quite like lots!!

I also think a few of mine have been goldfish dinners. I am sure you can find a store that will take them later, don't worry yet. It's impossible to sex them early on so you couldn't have known. Anyway my male and female were very territorial too not at all like lovers, strange creatures those bristled ones. Are there any goldies in there with them?

Yeah, theres 2 pretty big goldies in there with them. Dad hasn't let them out of the cave yet...but hes making the occassional appearance outside the cave to eat so I have a feeling I'll be seeing them soon.
