OMG OMG soooo excited *LOL*

I was cleaning my apple snails tank, anyway over it is my Pep tank, so i was just watching em and decided i wanted one of the bits of wood from in there to put in my apple tank, so i grab it and chuck it in. Anyway i go back to watching the Peps and what do i spot, bubba peps!! Lots and lots of bubba peps!!

Finally!! The male i've had for 2yrs waiting for the 2.5cm peps i bought to grow up *L*....2yrs of growing out the 4 peps has finally come to results.

I'm soooooooooo excited...my eldest son came running when i let out the *squeeeeeeeee* and just shook his head at me when he realised what i was excited about :D:D

Congrats, it's always exciting to get something to spawn, particularly when you've waited so long. I have 6 L-333's I've been growing out for well over a year now, still waiting for them to get busy. The L-134's are coming along too. I haven't had them as long, but they are faster-growing than the Hypancistrus species.
The wee peps should be easy enough to raise, and now that they've spawned once they'll likely keep going for some time.

Sorry for this quick hijack, but what do L-333 and L-134 and all those other numbers mean? I've been seeing them in reference to plecos, but I have absolutely no idea what they mean

Just different species of pleco. There's so many out there, not all have been named :ssmile:

The L-number system is widely used for identification, better than common names, but not all of the species listed have been scientifically classified. Here's a helpful link: http://www.planetcatfish.com/catelog/numbers.php?mode=l&thumbs=16
