Thanks. I got the male and the guy threw in the female for free. I thought she was a male because they fought at first, but I guess they were courting. lol -- The male got back into the cave yesterday and was acting as if he were stuffing eggs into the same niche ---- I almost had a heart attack. Picked it up to look inside and saw...thankfully...nothing. I hear they won't reproduce as much if there are a lot of them, so I'm going to keep as many as I can.

How many can you have in a 46 gallon? It's a bowfront which means it doesn't have as much bottom area as a normal rectangle.

Nuther video

This shows the momma at the beginning, taking some of the babies on a zucchini ride LOL Then there is the big papa next to one of the babies. Hard to believe they will eventually be that big!

Both of the adults are overfed... I know this, but it can't be helped, the babies need food!

My female has a beer belly like your male does. Bummer. I was hoping she was with child(s). Cute video.

Adorable little ones. I'm glad you posted this last video. After watching it I'm now convinced I do have a fat female BN. She looks just like yours. I was worried it was a common pleco but now I know she's not. Thanks

Yes that big one is a character. The babies are all over his tail, but he doesn't mind. In the next video, you'll see the momma use her tail to protect the babies. She swishes it towards them as if to round them up. She does this will her wafers too. LOL
