Hello- I did a water change this afternoon and discovered that my albino BN trio spawned
and Daddy is taking good care of the eggs in their cave/tube--I had dumped him out of the tube and a couple of eggs came with before I realized the situation, but the majority of the spawn stayed intact at the back of the tube and he quickly resumed his post.
My apologies, but I have a number of questions as this is my first experience with BN Plechos spawning:
how long until they hatch?
how long until they exit the cave and are on their own?
90-gallon tank; Tank mates are 10 juvi frontosa kigoma, 2 syno multi catfish and 2 pair of altolamprologus compressiceps (all purchased 12/2014, including the BNs, so they are all young). Will these tankmates be a threat to the fry once they are free swimmers?
Thanks in advance!
