Super Reds laying eggs outside of caves.


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. I have a small tank with male and female bristle nose plecos both around 4 inch in length in a tank with some black guppies, snails, and baby plecos about 2-3 months old. When we first got the male and introduced him to the tank the pleco breed within a week and we have like 100 baby plecos swimming around growing. Soon I'll have a 40 breeder open to house the plecos. 

Anyway, yesterday the plecos breed outside the cave and left giant egg piles. The male doesn't seem to be caring for them. Should I remove them, leave them, put them in a breeder box?  

Any ideas why they might have laid outside the caves? Maybe they need a bigger cave?
