Finally got a shot of a very shy pleco. I've had him for about 8 months, very rarely comes out, at least when the lights are on.

Actually it's barancistrus, I was thinking of my old pair of zebra plecos I sold for 60 bucks to a buddy of mine about 6 yrs ago, Doh!

Baryancistrus sp. (L047). Thought it was a Gold Nugget until I saw the fin tips :)

When I sold 'em we were importing them for around 40 bucks landed, so it was a bit of a deal for him then, but I recently saw tiny half starved ones for 300 bucks, mine were almost 3 inches on the male and close to 2 inches for the female. Hindsight is 20/20

And where else do you know where you can go fishing from the rocks and catch Marlin,tuna,kingfish,sharks and other species in excess of 150kg?

I cant belive you did THAT!!!! zebra plecos can catch big prices like 500 and up if they are in good con'd. But a very nice gold nugget pleco you got there.

Thanx Jerry, btw where are you from "earth eater"
James Martin » posted 2007/12/08 04:15 pm  
Cody it's not a gold nugget, its known as a Magnum or Mango pleco.

The land down under mate. ;)

and Cody I know I gave them away, but at the time they weren't much more expensive then any other pleco. The most expensive ones we imported then were L25 scarlet dragon plecos, they were about 400 bucks retail at the time.
