Hey all, Linus and Lucy (my 2 adult Rubbernose plecos) had another successful hatching! Not 10 minutes ago, I counted 10 babies total. It is really hard to tell the new babies apart from the old, so I cannot tell how many are from the first or second batch, but there are definitely 10 total. This most recent hatching happened on June 6th, and they had laid and fertilized ~42 eggs. I will post some pics soon!

I have not had ich in my tanks for years. I am sorry if you got ich somehow, but it did not come from my tanks.

I will let you know when I am ready to sell! It will probably be awhile, though.

Also, just found 13 total!

Actually, I went through some Ich once I introduced Linus and Lucy into this tank. Luckily I caught it almost immediately and killed it in the first cycle.
