Still have plenty of all available. Pick up in the Bronx or in Ramsey NJ. I work around the corner from Fishtown USA in Ramsey and can meet up in the area. I also have some fry growing out from Hypancistrus contradens, Hypancistrus sp. Lower Xingu, and Ancistrus sp. L100. These should be ready in a few weeks.

Reuben -

The plecos that you sold me a few weeks ago are still doing GREAT in my medium light tank with HIGH co2 and ferts. Very hardy fish. They along with ottos are the ones ones able to survive in this tank. I never have to clean the glass from green dust algae...they must eat it all. I haven't fed them anything since I got them from you so they must be eating something in there.

That's good to hear. I would supplement with some food occasionally, especially the young ones need some protein once in a while. Let me know how they keep doing.

Got 2 Super reds from Cod a couple months ago.. They are doing great. Munching on Green Beans as we speak!
They are a perfect alternative to Otos... Although the Super reds get to 4 inches.

I don't really have any pics of the shrimp. They are your regular red cherry shrimp, not painted or sakura. I keep them in most of my pleco tanks to help with uneaten food, and they breed all the time in there. Here is a video of one of my tanks that has some shrimp in it, so you can get an idea of what they look like.

My adult contradens max out at about 4 inches but they can reach 5 inches TL. The lower Xingu's I have are young adults and are about 3.5 inches. I am sure they will probably reach 4 inches and can probably max out at about 5.
