Good idea, didn't look at these much cuz they havn't told me alot bout wut i have looked at. That didn't help me alot. There are 2 other plecos in with, It says the male will protect the eggs, But can they against the other plecos.

You are not giving much info either!
What other plecos are in the tank?
Does it have any other tank mates?
How big is the tank?

29gal is tank size, Has a 2.5 inch royal, 2 inch Hi fin, and guppies. My pleco is dark black with bright white spots, so id have to assume its a female according to info.

If you give them a good variety of food it should alright but your hi-fin will definately need another tank soon anyway!
My hi fin has more than doubled in size in the last few months.

Ya i know of the hi fin needing new tank, bought him when he was so small i couldn't even find him in tank. Hes growing rather quickly and will go to my 55 next. The 29 is actually my feeder tank with guppies for my 55, The plecos i got r just to add something to it and why i thought of why not breed snowball at same time.

Check out planetcatfish.com, and try a search for breeding + the L-number (sorry, not sure which one you have, I think there are 3 different ones commonly labelled "snowball pleco")
