As far as we know, no articles have been published about Rubber-lipped pleco breeding in aquariums and it remains unknown whether any aquarist has succeeded in breeding this species.

many plecos dig deep holes in a river bank to lay there eggs as a result breeding in captivity wouldnt be practical...for most anyway

Sexing wise: Males tend to have a larger head with a more slender body. The pelvic fins of males also tend to be larger. That's all I know
