Question Breeding Bristlenose Plecos

Hello everyone, i would like to start breeding bristlenose plecos because i just think they are so cute. however i do not know much about breeding them so any advice would be appreciated. will a gourami or red tailed shark eat the eggs? also how many eggs will one female lay and about how many will be fertilized/survive? do the mothers eat the fry? thanks

I don't think you'd have to worry about the eggs too much if the father's guarding them in a cave - I'd worry more about the red-tailed shark or gourami eating the young fish as they leave the cave and dad's protection.

18 species/varieties of fish, 15 species/varieties of plants - The fish are finally ahead of the plants!
*560 gallons (2120 liters) in 5 tanks -> you do the math.
