Medusa Pleco (L034)

Anyone here ever keep one of these? They seem like they would be the same as regular bristlenose plecos in terms of care, just a bit larger with a head that is a LOT bigger. All the pic on google show then in planted tanks, and they just seem like they'd look really cool. Apparently difficult to breed though, but that's okay.

Anyone? I really want a pair for my 75 now that I lost the pleco that I used to have, I'm not even caring in terms of algae eating, I just like plecos in general (though algae eating would be a cool bonus)

the little that i have read bout them in the past (considered buying them a while) they are hardy fish, that can be shy and I think (you may need to double check this one) they perfer to have some more meaty foods in their diet compared to the more common guys.
