Problems This photo was shot on the very first photo session I ever used a digital camera for aquarium photography.

A long time ago, when I photographed these zebra plecos, I did not know that they were both males. I was still hoping that they might be a male and a female and become a breeding pair. However, as they both continued to grow older, bigger and more mature, it eventually became clear that both of them were males.
