Listen, I had to crop the video before posting and although it wasn't suppose to change the aspect ratio, I think it did because they look much wider in the video than they really are. If your momma fish has a huge belly and you haven't overfed her, I bet she is holding eggs. Watch the male to see if he is unusually active. My papa was like that - he seemed angry. Next, he lured her into his love shack LOL. After that, he refused to come out.

I think mine are trying to have as many as possible because there is no threat to them in the tank as far as other fish go, plus they're fed well. It's their 46 gallon love nest LOL. They had more eggs about 2 weeks after these hatched. I took them out The papa immediately started stalking the mama again, the little horny devil

Can I say that on the forum?

I'm no expert so she may be a common. The guy on Aqua Bid had three longfins for sale. I wrote and asked him if he would be willing to sell just one male. (Stupid me didn't realize his 3 were too small to sex) So he sent me a big male with tiny bristles coming out and the female. So your guess is as good as mine as to whether she's a bristlenose or not.

I might take you up on that offer if it's feasible to do it so that they arrive safely.

I'm in North Florida. That would be great as long as you know they'll go to a good home. I hate the thought of giving them to a fish store like Pet Smart or Petco. But if your LFS takes good care of their fish, I wouldn't mind.

Not too pretty right now I'm afraid.... poop and slimy veggie matter all over the place. But they seem to like to eat it just before it falls apart. Plus, they won't give it up when I pull it out. I have to literally push them off.

Latest video. This is really the first time the parents have been out lounging together. They let me take their pictures with the camera light on. But I think the male is stalking the female, waiting for his chance to make more babies.

NOOOOOOOOO!!

Okay, unfortunately i live on Mass. so as much as i love plecos i think Florida is a bit far to drive so i can give them to a local store.

You should look around the forum though. I am sure someone would be willing to take them in.
