What he meant to say is the Pleco is a scavenger and will eat anything that it deems yummy. Pleco's like fish eggs so you don't want one in the tank with the eggs

hello and congrads
syphon them out and put them to a breeding tank
put a heater and a airtube in wait.
it is important to remove the white eggs, they are dead and often have some of fungus.
after 3-5 days they will hatch out and after some days you can start feeding them with brine shrimps 3 times a day

HAHAHAHHAAH YES two dads in here now!
Your spawn will more than likely look like this in a day or so. And well, what I did if you have an extra tank simply take the parents to that tank and leave the fry alone. Take out the Pleco. I've lost 3 batches to that quick little bastard. Removing the parents is much easier if you can. The fry don't have to worry about temp shock, ph or anything, they are in what they were born in. Whatever you do don't stir the rocks. When my piranha mated the first time I saw all those little dudes slipping down in the rocks and I was worried that they couldn't get out so........ I tried to help them by moving the rocks gently. They would swim off and in minutes got down there again. I'll post a baby hatching pic then I'll show you another pic. My tank seemed dead except for a couple of fry hatching as always and then like over night it changes to the next pic. View attachment 44803

sh*t, sorry posted twice by accident and now the other pic won't load. Anyways, the recent pic with fry everywhere in the tank is in piranha discussion babies anyone???. Needless to say they always come up from the rock when ready and flood the tank. Beautiful site!!!!!!!!!!!!

I removed the extra post.
