| || | Chinese Algea Eater Laying Eggs
I was hopeing someone could tell me a bit about chinese algea eaters breeding habits.
Around 2 or 3 months ago I bought a chinese algea eater from the pet store and just two days ago I saw eggs stuck to the side of my ten gallon fish tank. I have a betta, and three albino correy cat fish, and only the one algea eater. I am assuming it was the aglea eater because the correys never go up the side of the tank, and I can't imagin they would go their to lay eggs. So why would the aglea eater lay eggs with out any males? Do they lay eggs then the male feralizes them? Or are chinese algea eaters like sword fish that get breed once then produce eggs and fry for life? If not should I try and get a male algea eater so they can breed? Or should I just leave her alone and let her produce unfertalized eggs?
Many questions and I don't know a thing about it. Any help would really help!
