New pleco tank

Post by MrFish49 » Tue Oct 10, 2017 7:16 pm

Setting up a 55 for some L-066s hoping to possibly breed them as well. Any tips on what I should do with the tank to make it better for them?

Looks really good. Maybe push the caves back slightly more so that some of the rock hangs over the front of the cave.

What filter are you using? To get them to breed you need a high oxygen content so a few large sponge filters would do well

I was thinking two large sponge filters and either some more airstones from my pump or powerhead with an airline in. Thanks for the tip on the caves.
