http://img481.imageshack.us/img481/303/l664ee.jpg L66 Hypancistrus Sp."king Tiger" A few I just throw in with my cichlids.TheL180 and L235 I set up A couple of tanks with some driftwood.Put a powerhead in and placed a few spawning tubes facing the current.The ones in the tanks with the cichlids do fine.The cichlids leave them be.The plecos do fight each other though.feeding is fun.They get pretty active.

thats awesome, i don't think i should ask if you have anymore, lol my wife is going to hate me for awhile. which species have you gotten to breed?

I did have a little L66 someone spotted out to me.I think he is aten by now because I haven't seen him for a few days.I wasn't trying to breed them,but I have a group and they spawned once for sure.The L180 and L235 no luck yet.The others aren't really tank breedable species.At least not for an ametuer like me.Some are also hard to tell if they are male or female.With the hypancistrus and ancistrus it is fairly easy to tell sometimes.Some of the other stuff though?I would have to ask a pro for help.Thanks for looking<Steve http://img146.imageshack.us/img146/671/pleco19fx.jpg L24 Psuedacanthicus cf. serratus"red fin catus"-Rio totcatins...... This is another pleco just for show.
