albino bristlenose pleco eggs
 
i have a bit of concern cause my plecos finally laid a clutch of eggs for the first time and the male was taking care of them but they came loose from the under the rock and was laying loose in the tank so i sucked them up with a turkey baster and put them in a hanging breeder net. My question is will they still hatch or are they going to be a sad lose? i put the net in front of the discharge of the filter so it would circulate fresh water thru the net.Its the first time i have ever had them to lay eggs and i really want them to survive if possible.Any info would be helpful...

thanks a bunch..

i got my answer today as i just checked them and they are hatching now.I can see there tails wiggling and 8 are out of the shell and fluttering around the net with the egg sack still attached..

after they absorb the egg sack i will get some micro worms and baby brim shrimp as well as some zucchini for them to munch on...

Spirulina pellets,alage wafers,and a piece of lettuce attached to a rock with rubberband Daily, are what I feed the approx 40 baby bristlenose I have currently.
