The members of this forum have come together to share our knowledge and experiences of fish keeping. We want to answer your questions, offer advice and fill the galleries with pictures of the fish we have all grown to love.

We are a unique community of Fish Keepers who seriously take our hobby to extremes and the NEXT level. The majority of our fish collections include RARE & EXOTIC Species of all sizes, BIG FISH with BIG APPETITES and BIG TANKS.

      I just added a plec a couple weeks ago in my Oscar tank. There is only ONE. I have these black round spheres on the bottom, I can't explain it any other way. The fish was a trade in at the store, so maybe it was gravid at the time it was traded in?

      looks like mini rabbit crap

      I've never seen pleco eggs so I can't help you. I would have not thought they would be black though.

      Those don't look like any fish eggs I have ever seen, look more like amphibian eggs. What kind of plecostomus is it? Anything else in the tank? Supposedly most plecos are difficult to breed in captivity save for ancistrus and their eggs look like this...

      I agree, they do look like amphibian eggs. I have no amphibians.
