Looks like a Pleco to me, what are you talking about?
Anyway, I think it also is a white skirt tetra of some sort. Just adding they need to be kept in schools of at least 8 and without fin-nippers.Its Phillip, not Origami.

They will lay eggs and then eat the eggs as soon as they lay them. If you want to breed them, they should go in a tank just for them and as soon as they spawn, remove the male and female.

Taken from http://freshaquarium.about.com/cs/ch...skirttetra.htm
Female white skirts are generally larger than the males and have a rounder body. Males have a broader anal fin, and a narrower more pointed dorsal fin.
Larger males will generally claim a territory that they will guard during spawning periods. Although they are egg scatters they prefer to spawn among fine-leaved plants, which should be provided in the breeding tank. Once spawning has occurred the parents should be removed, as they will consume the eggs. Eggs will hatch after approximately one day. The fry may be fed freshly hatched brine shrimp, egg yolk, or finely ground flake foods."
Not sure how long they are supposed to hold the eggs for before they release them, but at least this answers how long it takes to hatch eggs after they are released. My mom's cories dont seem to have a set time that they hold the eggs, so idk if there is one for fish. Cant help you there.
