    Just thought i'd share a few pictures of my zebra plec tank, all where bought as juvenille's, and are slowly getting bigger and fatter. :D

    Sorry about the quality of the pics, they are very shy and hide as soon as some one goes in the room.

    Are the exports still banned? How much do tank bred ones cost these days?

    Yes, there is no exporting of wild zebs, but they do pop up now and then.

    Mine are all tank bred (F1), and basically they go for around £100 for 1-1 1/4" which would be about 6-9 months old.

    There's always a few on Ebay, and of course http://www.zebrapleco.com

    I hope your investment pays off!

    Are they easy to sex or do you have a group?

    Yes, it would be very good if it did, but we'll just have to wait and see, but it was something i've always wanted to do, but never really had the capital to do it. ;)

    They are always so cute to look at, and it's good fun doing water changes as i remove the rocks and there still stuck to it. :D

    As for sexing, haven't a clue for mine, hopefully a good split of m/f for my 12. I bought them from 2 sources also, so will a have a good mixture of breeding lines too.

    One of the ones i bought also has some broken lines on the stripes, but he is very small still.

    Still no spawning with mine, but it's only 10 months on, and they are probably just coming into young adulthood. :rolleyes:

    But unfortunately i did loose one of the adults, which is a real shame.

    And in the same instant found about 5 Cory. Sterbai babies (2cm!) in my Blyxa tank.

    Karma.
