by Dave McGrewOn June 11, 2021, I cleared out our African Cichlid tank, added wood from a separate tear-down, leaving in a pair of Bristlenose Plecos. The Ancistrus, female brown / olive, male golden, enjoyed the reset so much that they decided a particular crack in the wood looked like home.By June 13, 2021, golden eggs were visible, guarded by the golden male.By June 15, 2021, a few of the eggs could be seen "eyeing-up" -- embryonic development evident.On June 18, 2021, the first hatchling was discovered on the front glass, still wearing much of its yolk sack.The male turned around in the cave to apparently "guard" the remaining fry in the cave.Fry emerged en force on June 25, 2021 (this date will mark the commencement of BAP "free-swimming" marker)All fry chocolate like mom, bursting out of the "crib" . . .Here is a 1-minute video dated 06-25-2021, showing the fry emergence:From June 29, 2021, here are some shots of preparations of boiled Zucchini for frySome photos taken in the pitch dark of night that same evening . . .Here is a video, taken July 4, 2021, of the BNP fry eating zucchini again . . .Here is a video, dated July 14, 2021, surveying the massive grout colonies of Electric Blue Acaras and Bristlenose Plecos. And one final video update for BAP, 07-31-2021 . . .
