Plagueromyzon cheni

How the heck do we stop these things breeding?

Our initial batch of Pseudogastromyzon cheni are about 1.5 cms long now. We've just found some new tiny babies in the tank and there's a lots of intermedeate sizes inbetween......it's crazy!

I guess this is a case of being just too successful with the tank concept, but I never conceived of getting into a sort of 'Convict Cichlid' reproduction rate. Reckon they are spawning every 2-3 weeks at present.

Martin.
