breeding plecos?

has anyone ever bred plecos? if so what are the paramaters needed to do so? I was talking to a friend of mine, and he asked me about it, and I had absolutely no idea. Now I am curious.

There is an excellent profile written by JChillin on DBN plecos. In it he touches on breeding the species. Check it out in the profiles section.

From what i have read, so plecos will not tolerate other plecos in the tank of the same kind enless they are a proven breeding pair.

BN plecos are an exception... those are the only ones i am positive about though. You may went to send TwoHobbies a PM, i know he has successfully bred BN plecos.

Other than that, i have no idea about params and technique and all that stuff.
