When you stimulate your Plecos for breeding try to increase your water flowing like in this video. I use force pumps with 500 gal per hour. Tank size is 25 gal. That’s work! #pleco #plecoceramics #plecostomus #hypancistruszebra #plecolife #breedingpleco #plecocave #plecofry
Hypancistrus L236! Ideal body shape. Berfect white color.
Ps guys don’t ask me about selling plecos. We don’t sell it now, but we are going to start it next year. We just sell only different types of pleco caves on Amazon ( link in bio). #plecostomus #hypancistrus #hypancistruszebra #plecocave #plecolife #breedingplecos

Sometimes it’s really easy to check sex of your pleco. I think it’s easy to find male on this photo. By the way it’s a pair of one of the smallest plecos in the hobby. It’s Hypancistrus L174 and it’s adult pair. Male has only 2 inch length. That’s really good for small tanks.
P.s. guys don’t ask me about selling plecos :). We are building our pleco farm now. And I hope we will start to sell plecos globally next year.  We are selling only pleco decorations now. And it’s huge motivation  when we see your positive feedbacks from us on Amazon,  etc. It’s really help us and we appreciate it! 🙏 Thank you all👍 #plecostomus #plecoceramics #zebrapleco #plecocave #hypancistrus

@Regran_ed from @pleco_ceramics -  New Breeding setup for Zebra Pleco l046. Usually I use tanks with such dimensions length 20 inch , width 20 inch , and height 16 inch. It’s about 26 gal or 100 liters. Such tanks good for small group. 5 adults, usually it’s 2 males and 3 females. It’s enough size for them width good floor area.

This type of feeding is also good for tanks with substrate on the bottom. Because your substrate doesn’t pollute by leftovers of food ( like with pleco tablets)

Special patterns of Hypancistrus Zebra.
Seldom in offspring the juveniles with a rare and unusual colouration for this species appear among usual juveniles of Hypancistrus Zebra. The price for such juveniles depending on colouration exclusivity can come up to USD 1000 per piece. The variants of colouration where the most part of a fish’s body is white are extremely valued.  And the black stripes, even if there are ones, are very thin. 
I breed zebra plecos since 2013. About 1300 juveniles were got for all the time. And for all the time only one juvenile has the exclusive colouration. I will show it in the next posts. #plecofry #plecoceramics #hypancistruszebra #hypancistrus #plecolife #plecocave

The ways of the plecos spawning stimulation
1. Replacement of water on softer one with lower temperature than in the tank. It is the most famous way of spawning stimulation. Often, in nature, many species of plecos start spawning with the beginning of the rainfall season, as a river overflows, take greater territories and consequently there is more food available for the progeny. You’d better use non-mineral water (RO water) for replacement as it is the most similar to the rain water on its content. Also if you start imitating the rainfall season, you should make every day replacements for at least one month. Then you will get result. Often the several days’ replacements are not effective as a fish should make sure that the rainfall season really started, that it is not a single rain. 
2. Water level change in a tank. It is also connected with the shift of a dry season and a rainfall season.  Often rising of water level stimulates spawning of plecos. For this we should drop the level of water in a tank for some time (1-2 months), and then rise it together with the often water replacements. I will tell you in advance that drop of the water level for 1-2 weeks with the following rising mostly does not help.
3. Feeding. It is one of the most important factors stimulating spawning. Most often in nature, the plecos spawning season starts with the seasonal flying out of the insects (move of the larvae from the water level to the ground). That is why terminal feeding with various larvae of the insects (blood worms, white blood worms) give a very good result often. It is very important to change the food ration terminally, at least once in three months.  Then the food ration change will help you to stimulate spawning.
It is not all, but to my mind the most effective factors. #plecoceramics #plecocave #breedingplecos #plecofry #plecolife

Very often we see in the names of L-plecos the species’ name written not in Latin letters but with the index L and  number. For example, L046, L134, L204 etc.⠀
The Loricariidae family includes five subfamilies with more than 800 species of plecos. This group of fishes has started appearing in the tanks of amateurs approximately from the 90-s of the 20-th century.  Often the plecos caught in nature were not scientifically described. And to identify them at least somehow (for example for the aquarium fishes’ exporters pricelists) such numeration was thought up. It consists of the letter L that means that this fish belongs to the Loricariidae family and number that was assigned randomly. Sometimes one and the same fish can go under different numbers, for example L018, L085, L177, it is the same species. ⠀
As far as the popularity of these plecos among aquarists grew, they started describing them and assign Latin names. It’s worth noting that this is not a child’s play and to describe one species can take years. But identification system in the form of L…. naturalized so well that the aquarists use it up today. Despite many L numbers have already been described and have scientific names. For example, L046 is Hypancistrus Zebra, L018, L085,L177 – Baryancistrus Xanthellus etc

Happy aloha Friday
Regrann from @pleco_ceramics -  Now it’s time to write a big post about Hypancistrus Zebra.
I breed this fish since 2013. During this time total 900-1000 fish juveniles were received. That is why I think I know a good thing in it. I will not write here generally available information, but will stop on some practical points that I use myself.
Conditions of holding.
Water temperature is 86F. Such a high temperature is very important for further breeding.
Tank volume for a group of 5 fishes is from 25 gallons.
Filtration. I suggest to use an external filter in combination with a pomp inside the tank to create quite a heavy current.
Aeration is also very important because the quantity of oxygen dissolved in water play a major role for this fish.
TDS 80-100 ppm. I know many cases of the zebra pleco spawning in more hard water, but in my tanks I keep exactly these TDS markers.
pH 6,8-7,2 - a fish feels very bad when рН is above 8,0.
Feeding.
The more diverse is food ration the better. I use a lot of frozen fish foods such as brine shrimp, red blood worms, white blood worms, daphnia. Also I make fish food following my own recipe on the basis of spirulina. I will record a video about it one day.
I use pleco tablets. A trade mark does not have a fundamental importance; the main thing is that the tablets flour after sinking. Zebra Pleco will not gnaw large pieces of food. Its mouth is arranged to pick up small parts from the bottom.
Breeding.... 😎

Tips for Bristlenose breeding ⚡️⚡️⚡️
You must have at least a couple of fish. Female and male. How to distinguish them from each other is shown in the picture. ⚡️put pleco cave in your tank. Because bristlenose lay eggs there. Link to our pleco caves store in bio
⚡️Your fish should be sexually mature. Usually fish is ready for breeding when they reach 3 inches size.
Necessary technical conditions
⚡️The aquarium volume is required at least 10 gallons
⚡️Water filtration and aeration is required
⚡️The thermostat is required to keep the temperature 73-76F
⚡️The water pH the does not have fundamantal importance, but it is desirable for it to be pH6.5-7.5
⚡️TDS 50-150ppm basically Bristlenose spawn even in more rigid water, but the softer water is the better.
Food
⚡️The basis of the diet is compound of frozen blood worms, daphnia, artemia etc.
⚡️Be sure to add herbal ingredients, tablets for catfish with spirulina, zucchini and other vegetables.
When you see that the female has a noticeably rounded stomach, you can start stimulating reproduction.
⚡️The stimulus to reproduction is a slight decrease in the water temperature to 70-73F
⚡️Daily water changes about 30% of the total volume for 10-14 days.
⚡️To use rainwater or reverse osmosis water during water changes has a posotive effect.
As a rule, after the first spawning the fish continues to spawn for several months. The break between spawning is usually 40 days, this time is necessary for the female to gain roe. #plecoeducation #plecoceramics #breedingplecos #breedingbristlenose #plecocave
