"This is the 2nd batch of baby bushynose plecos we have had. The first batch did not go well and all the babies died because I moved them into a 10gallon tank that was not cycled yet. The father pleco also ended up dying. I had another tank with another male and moved him to to female tanks so now there are move babies. The babies because free swimming on Monday but the dad outdated let them out of the cave. Today a few have snuck out but the rest are still in the cave with dad. I tried feeding a sinking pellet and a small piece of blanched zucchini but no one touched it and I had to remove the food from the tank. I am worried that they will die either because dad won't let them out of the cave or that they are not smart enough to find the food. I have had to do water changes daily since the nitrate went up to 10. I would say I changed about 1/3 of the water. Do I have to forcefully remove dad? (Which knowing him I will have to take the rock he is  in out of the water and make him drop into the tank, but there are babies in their too! . ) how do I get them to eat without polluting this small tank? "
