Saigon Aquarium, Plecos (3/5)

This section of the farm consisted of many tarp-lined ponds full of cut lengths of pvc pipe. The pipe were, presumably, full of adult ancistrus (‘plecos’) of various kinds sitting on eggs, but no adults were visible through the glare.

This technique seems pretty uncomplicated — since ancistrus are good parents they just leave them alone in the ponds and scoop out and sort the young as needed.
