Congrats on the freakin awesome fry. Not that ive ever had pleco babies, but I would think it wouldnt be TOO too long before they can live in the main tank, provided there isnt any voracious carnivores in there :)
As a follow up to this post...
I placed the moonstone, fry, and daddy in a breeder trap and have the filter flow on it so that it gets constant filtered water. I read on another forum to remove the daddy and feed the fry by using a dropper and crushed algae wafer dissolved in water. I did this and overnight the daddy ABNP crawled over the net and back into the breeder trap! I could believe it - he had to at least climb an inch & a half out of the water! He's staying - It's a 55g with a few platy & mollies that will eat everything that moves. He continues to clean out and guard the cave.
