For the second time -- though first we've actually filmed -- one of our Bristlenose Plecos decided to set up home right in the lions den. We bought three BNPs when we set up this 55 gal. African Cichlid tank, never dreaming they'd spawn in it. It's like giving birth on the Moon!
This young male albino BNP has found just about _the only_ place in the tank where the Cichlids cannot reach to snatch up eggs. Last time this happened, a month or so ago, the eggs hatched and we saw a number of little wigglers. We tried to saturate the area with some Sera Micron dissolved in water, but after about a week, they all disappeared. We wonder if one day we'll turn over a rock and find them all!
Anyway, we're a bit torn with this batch. Any thoughts? Should we try to pull the eggs and let them hatch in a controlled environment? Or should we just let it go and see if some make it?
Here's a short Video of what we found today:
