Nice pictures. Very Happy I like Sturisomas, but never had a tank large enough to hold one.

Do they tend to sit ontop of their eggs like that all the time, or is it just that photo?

Thanks.

The male will guard the eggs till they hatch just like most plecs, But they don't stay with them once hatched.

I have the pair in a 26 gal long. They only breed for about 3 months out of the year.

Here is a pic of a couple of the fry. The pvc tube you see is in a tank behind this one.
