Yes, they are.

I have adult CPDs in tanks with Emperor 280 and 400 filters. No pre-filters needed once they are 1/2 of the adult size. Fry, however, would get sucked into the filter. But since CPDs eat eggs and...

Rubberlip plecos cannot handle temps high enough to kill ich for that long of a time. Meds are needed in this case. I understand that just increasing the temps may be great for some fish but it could...

That does not look like CPD eggs. All CPD eggs are the same size. How large are the holes in your mesh? They look a bit too small for any CPDs eggs to fall through. I use craft canvas sold at Walmart...
