what to do with bristlenose pleco fry?
So my bristlenose plecos laid eggs on Wednesday. My male has been obsessively guarding and fanning the eggs and you can start to see the eggs developed.
My question is this.... i have two options for when they hatch. Which would be best?
1- I have a netted breeder box that I could put them in. I have plants in there that would allow them cover. The net would sit right in the fifty five gallon tank that has a canister filter rated for 125 gallons on it, has alot of live plants, driftwood, and gets a 50% water change every 7-10 days. Its kept around 76 degrees.
2- I have a five gallon cycled tank that has no fish in it as of yesterday. It has sand at the bottom, fake plants, a few Java fern, and a piece of driftwood. The filter is for up to ten gallons, but has a sponge piece in the intake so the flow isn't too powerful. Its kept around 76 degrees. I normally do a 30% water change weekly on it, as i only had a couple fry in the.
Fish deserve time, effort and lots of care!!! Please don't impulse buy!
55 gallon, 46 gallon, 10 gallon, 5 gallon, 2.5 gallon
