L397 batch of eggs

Hi hope everyone is well.
I got a batch of eggs and half turned white in my ziss tumbler.
I raised the temperature from 80 to 83 could that be it.
Last few spawns I had a 99% hatch rate.

Re: ID these baby plecos

I have seen and pictured many L306 youngsters and none have ever had a 'split' or pale line in the band on the face like the one in this picture, even though there can be quite a bit of variation in pattern. That, and the lack of red colouration, makes me think it is unlikely to be that species. Th...

Re: ID these baby plecos

Here's another photo of the plecos. That hint of yellow makes me think possible
L403?

Hope everyone is doing well!
Thanks in advance.
I have a batch of eggs in a ziss 85 egg tumbler.

L397 babies escape breeder box

Just when things were going great. Last night the top popped off the ziss breeder box. With just a tiny area ontop seemed all the babies escaped. A little redemption I found a dozen babies all on the back of my eheim powerhead. I netted the pump and saved many babies. Any ideas on how I can attract ...

Re: Fungus and a fish lice.

Thanks the fungus seems to be on 2 plecos. Not sure if there fighting at night. I'm thinking to rehoming those 2 fish to another tank to make sure the other plecos are good. Webs water garden has microbelift bacteria and also the lice microblift for great deals. Do fish lice just go away or do they ...

Re: Fungus and a fish lice.

Thanks so much guys!
I haven't seen anymore so just playing it cool.

This fungus is still on a few of my L397.
Should I quarantine any pleco that shows any fungus infection so it won't spread or just treat whole tank. I raised the temperature to 86 and added salt 1 tablespoon for 3 gallons treatment.

Re: Fungus and a fish lice.

Thanks Eric I'm raising the temperature now with my new fluval e series.

I don't see any on any fish just saw this on the glass. I read an article they don't reproduce in the aquarium. Something else I read said I need to treat since they would lay eggs.
