Topic: Here is my L134 Leopard Frog Pleco. He is my personal favorite. (Image posted below)
Nate Yang: Beautiful! How big do they get?
Ka Ying Yang: From what I’ve seen and read, 4.5 inches should be the max! Perfect size if you ask me!
Jeff Curtis Jr: I’ve got a buddy that has a wild proven breeding group of them n currently I’m growing out 6 juvies
Ka Ying Yang: Jeff, how many does he have in his breeding group? And what’s the male to female ratio? J/w cause I’m always collecting information about these guys.
Jeff Curtis Jr: Think it’s two pairs they are around 5 years old or so
Matt Mitchell: Yep and just like rabbits. funny thing is guy I got them from had them for 5 years with no luck. They eat food like crazy too.
Ka Ying Yang: I’ve heard plenty of stories from people with varying luck. Some like you said are like rabbits, others just never get going!
Matt Mitchell: me too. Like the guy who I got them from. 5 years is a long time to wait for a spawn. I had them for 6 months, and fry. Funny how plecos can be so odd.
Ka Ying Yang: You’re obviously doing something right! Hope you come across several more batches!
Matt Mitchell: The alpha male is sitting on eggs about every 3 weeks now.
Matt Mitchell: take the fry and a week later more eggs. I would estimate around 100-120 fry growing out. And they appear to be extremely resilient. No fry deaths that I have seen yet.
Ka Ying Yang: Seriously? Wow!
Ka Ying Yang: Here goes another one guarding his cave closely.
