Plecos bred

I have two plecos in my planted tank. One is an albino BN and one standard BN. I have noticed large areas under my driftwood that were dug out and the male had disappeared. I was doing a water change this morning and saw a little pleco on the glass! I thought if anyone would appreciate it you guys would.

I'm not sure, it's too small to tell so it might be an interesting pleco when it gets big enough to tell. I hope it doesn't get eaten!

I agree with all of you! I now have at least 4 plecos in a 72g tank. What do you guys think I should do with the babies? I'm going to keep the adults.

Not interested in selling them. I'll give them to someone who can give them a good home.

Albino=recessive allele so I don't think any will be... If your babies breed they will have about 25% albino though
