    Default Some new plecos

    Recently got my hands on some awesome whiptails, first species is Loricaria sp Atabapo (crying whiptail), second is Spatuloricaria caquetae. Will get better pics soon, this was after a water change. Unfortunately the tail filaments on the crying whiptails are broken, but the ons on the other species are crazy long. The big one’s (hiding behind the rock) is guesstimated 8 inch long. Will try to snap a goood pic of that one in the next few days.

    Also got some new cories to replace what I lost in the vape juice incident, Brochis splendens, Corydoras loxozonus, C. metae and C reynoldsi longnose. While I was there I figured why not get an L200, L190, L007 and L124 to save some gas money.
    I’ve also got my eye on a group of C. serratus, a couple of L128 and some L091. Need to negotiate on these though, fish budget is kinda tapped out right now. Trying to trade in my silver superveil angel pairs

    He’s been brooding the eggs for about a week now.

    VERY COOL! Both the species and the guarding of the eggs.

    It’s been 9 days now, from what I can see a lot are fertile and developing well. He’s too far away and tucked to get pictures. Can’t wait for them to hatch. Should be another week. No predators in the tank so should be possible to raise them.

    Some pics from just now though just for kicks: (couldn’t resist the blue phanthoms, they are stunning)

    Very cool Tobi! I can’t wait to see the little baby whip tails or whipper snappers as they say.

    Me neither, Patty. Really excited about it.
    And I just went to check, there is now a second one holding fresh eggs. I can’t tell if it’s anoter male already brooding or if it’s the same or a different female that laid the first batch. Unexpected by any means, just as the first batch.

    Thanks guys. Eggs are gone, guess they hatched and got eaten.

    But the hits keep on coming, just got back from the lfs. 2 L168, 1 L190, 1 L081, 1 striped something something, need to check what it is, and these 2(which I vowed I would never buy because I think they are the most overrated pleco species ever:

    I judged too quickly. We have survivors!!!! Counted 4 so far, there must be more under all those IAL and other nooks and crannies. They’re so hard to see. And because I thought he batch was lost, I vacuumed the tank yesterday
