Second Spawn for Albino Long Fin BN Plecos

Well, my plecos have spawned again - Dad is fanning eggs as I type

I still have 35-40 fry at a little over 1" in length from the last spawn that are not quite grown out yet to take to the LFS....they are in my current 10G grow out tank. My thought is to upgrade these into a 20G grow out tank so that I can add the new spawn after the eggs hatch out (while they are still wrigglers/before they become free swimming).

Will a 20G be large enough (I really don't have room for anything bigger)? Can the two different age fry live together in a 20G or should I just let the new fry grow out in the 40G where they were spawned?

I was not expecting the parents to spawn again so quickly.....I could conceivably wind up with close to 100 fry within the next 10 days or so if this new spawn goes as well as the last.

Advice, please.....

Thanks tons,
Clare

Congrats on your Plecos! I remember looking at your other thread, the babies were very cute.
