Can Plecos interbreed?
I have a 100L home aquarium tank at home in which I had a small Golden Pleco. I recently re-homed 2 other Plecos from 2 different friends, a bristle nose plec and a common plec. All 3 plecs have lived alone in small aquariums for more than 18 months. I have just done my weekly water change and discovered a baby Pleco!!! I have not added any other fish other than the few I re-homed. I have no knowledge about breeding fish (apart from Plattys) and have done nothing other than to care for my fish in the usual way. I have good live plants, regular water change and high quality food.
Can anyone confirm they have also had different species of Plec inter-breed before?
Many thanks in advance.
I'm thinking that golden pleco is simply an albino version of the BN or common and not really it's own species.
If the bristlenose doesn't look like other pictures of bristlenose pleco... it probably isn't one. Again.. they probably are in fact the same species.
What would it be then?
I have a picture but I'm unsure how to post it here :/
Btw, I know that my plecos are the same species; I'm just trying to figure out what type of pleco this is.
Nevermind, I found out what it is and its not a pleco at all! LOL
