Bristlenose pleco eggs

My bristlenose finally laid eggs again the other week. I then had to take a small trip so I was unable to pull the fry before they were eaten. Then I found the female dead yesterday!

These shots were a little tricky to get, I couldnt get the flash right above, but the effect is kinda cool

Just laid


Few days old


Eggs

Those are spectacular shots! Sorry you lost your female, though. I'm assuming you have these in a tank of their own? I removed my eggs from a community tank. The fry lasted a few weeks but then I lost all of them, so now I'm trying to trigger them again without much success. I think I should have taken dad with them. I hope these all make it for you!
Can I ask what type of camera you used for these photos? I can't get over the clarity.

Thank you for the comments!

The eggs hatched, but I was away for the weekend, they got eaten.

They are in my 55 gallon, with tetras, apistos.

The camera is a Canon XTi with a 100mm macro lens

Wow, those photos are fantastic! And congratulations on the happy event.

Edit: oops--I was so impressed with the pics I didn't read the post. That is a major bummer.

Those are absolutely fantastic shots. Really alien and artsy to someone who wouldn't know what they are really of.

So sorry to hear about the female and lost clutch.

that first shot would have won the photo contest. Nice shots bigstick.

Peace,

Wow that is some really cool photo work.

The BN in our planted discus tank at work have been spawning quite often the past few months. It looks like a few might make it. Ours are spawning in a cave so all we can see is daddies tail sticking out of the cave.

I just got a female for my male so I might get some BN action going on in one of my tanks. I sure hope I do. Baby plecos are pretty neat!

Once again, really nice photo work and sorry to hear that they didn't make it.

Thank you all for the comments. I think I will submit a few of them to a magazine. Gather up a few shots and send them in. Hopefully they decide to use them.
