N. Tampa/Lutz - Baby BN plecos have to go

I've got a bunch of baby BN plecos in my 55 gallon. There's probably at least 15 hiding in there, maybe more, all differing sizes.

Let me know if you want one or eight, or all of them. If you could make a donation of java fern, anubias or jungle val, that would be great, but if not, that's fine too. PM me if you want a few.

Not a great pic, but it shows the white on the tip of the tail:


In a glass container:

When do you need them gone by?

Dilution is the solution for the pollution.

If you agreed with me we'd both be right.

No real rush, sometime in the next few weeks I guess.

Great, I think I just saw a fresh batch of tiny babies in the tank.

Oh lord, I would say there must be something in the water but you can't change that situation huh? You had better separate those little sex fiends.

They've been together in that tank for a while, and just recently decided to get busy makin' babies. I guess that means they're happy with the tank at least.

I could scoop all these little guys out and take them to Marine Warehouse for store credit, but I think I'd spend more in gas to get there and back.

LOL but that would solve your brood of babies issue. I would love to pick one up but I have one in my 20L and it is making a f*ing mess. If I manage to capture it, I am giving it away to another local forum member who does not have a dirt tank like I do. This little guy has dug up my tank something fierce. It's funny though when he comes out to eat and the cherries swarm all over him and he is covered end to end in shrimp.

Plecos! You buy! You buy!

...actually, just take them. My tank is all planted up, so I have no need to take plant donations anymore. Just come and get them. Somebody.

LFS = Petco or Petsmart or Pet Supermarket

I can't think of any independent pet shops anywhere near me.

I could possible take them off your hands as I breed the albino bristlenose and have a grow out tank with cherry shrimp for them. I just don't know when I can make it up your way. Could possibly meet somewhere. I live in South Tampa. How many do you have?

I think I've got about 10 babies. We could meet somewhere. PM me if you want to set something up.

Yea I'll take them off your hands. Possibly this weekend? However many you have left after Drew gets some if he wants any. Didn't know how anxious you were to get rid of them. Let me know.
