Plecostomus and his eggs
Buy this picture
Plecostomus' mate for life and lay their eggs in hollows in a log. Once the eggs are laid, the male protects the eggs and fans them with his fins to keep fresh water on them. This male would not leave his eggs, even when I cleaned the tank. I kept water in the hollow during the cleaning so that babies and daddy were fine.
