Eggs won't eat. When were they laid and what color are they? Are the plecos still in the driftwood with the eggs?

you need to get the eggs out and air rate them. male plecos are a good parent. once the female lays the egg he kicks her out then fans the eggs until they hatch. they stay in the cave for a little while after they hatch then kick out and start over.

i wouldnt remove the wood. feed the babies zucchini and do lots of water changes. grow them out and keep them or sell them.

you could send me some of them (lol) if you still don't know what to do with them. I can never find the Albino ones around here. Post some pics if you can.
congrats.
