Default First Pleco Eggs Ever!

I've never had breeding plecos before! I purchased some little baby LF green dragons from Rottie just over a year ago, and kept a pair - today I was shocked to find some clumps of orange eggs a few inches away from the cave! I'm cobbling together a DIY egg tumbler now, and am so very excited!

If anyone wants to throw any advice my way, it would be greatly appreciated! I've only ever bred danios in the past - and their eggs require almost no care, so this is new territory for me!

Just leave them with the dad he should take care of the rest. They are bristle nose so they're super easy to take care of. If this is the first time get ready for a bunch more! After about a week or so see if the fry have lost majority of the egg sack and then you can remove them from the cave And raise them on your own.

Thanks! Unfortunately the large majority of the eggs were already ejected from the cave from the first time dad.

Yup that's okay. It'll take a couple of times for him to get the hang of it. If you're keen on saving the eggs and tumbling them then sure, it's good practice but just my own personal opinion I don't think tumbling is necessary for bristle nose. It's just a ton of extra unneeded work.
Cheers Chris! I keep a ton of plecos check out my youtube page next gen aquarium.
Hope I helped a bit! Cheers
