Plecos tend to breed in the winter. If you supply the male with a cave, and he is actively hanging out in it and swishing around his tail to keep it clean, then do a BIG water change - at least 50%. This will cause them to want to breed.
i See, but my male pleco doesn't like the cave, he ever stays in there long if he even ever goes in. so i tried many caves, but he doesn't pick.

Essentially how they breed is the male sets up shop in his cave and stays there. When the female is full of eggs from being fed lots of good food, and then a large water change happens, she'll visit the male in his cave and they'll mate. If you have more than one female, they take turns.
