Yup those are true zebras! But i would switch them to a bigger tank asap. They would be much happier in atleast a 40 gallon with sand and driftwood

The OP may like it. Does it really matter? It's not your tank. Adorable fish, BTW!

No it's not my tank.
I'm just stating I dislike the gravel.

From what I've read (no prior experience) I believe they like a little current. They also really appreciate caves so getting some cheap PVC tubing will work. Get a few of those and you're on your way. Water quality is always paramount when breeding any fish.

They eat a mix of veggies and meat. Most people forget ab the fact that they are omnivorous.

If you're ever in the market to sell babies, hit me up

Sometimes there is no point in stating your opinion about an unrelated topic. This is one of them. Keep the fact you don't like the gravel to yourself, because this isnt a place where you should be posting that.

To the OP-
Good luck breeding your plecos!

Most hypans although omnivorous will rarely take veggies unless they aren't offered meat for a long time. Conditioning also requires higher protein to plump them full of eggs. 20 to 30 gal tank is fine for for breeding plecos in. A bigger tank would allow better water quality and less competition though. Often temp and ph change are key factors in triggering Spawns. If you feed them 1-2 times everyday for several weeks you should start seeing differences between a well fed pleco and a gravid pleco. Some people will try for months, some people try for years before they get or don't get a spawn from these awesome fish.

I think water movement is very important for this species (high oxygen levels). I also think lots of caves like flower pots or actual Pleco caves are needed for breeding. Sand is a good idea as well only because it might make them feel more at home than orange gravel
