Final round of BN pleco juvies


Back again with one last round of juvenile bristlenose plecos - a small selection of approximately 11 fish, both brown and albino varieties available for pickup in Elgin, right off 31 (near both 90 and 20).

No, sorry folks, these are NOT blue eyed BNs, or I'd be charging a whole lot more than the current asking price of FREE.

That's right! Young, healthy, BN plecos available now for FREE (minus the cost of you actually coming to get them). While BNs aren't expensive at your LFS, why take a chance on a fish that's living in a community filter system that you have to pay money for!? All are healthy, energetic and hungry.

I'd like to have any fish picked up on Saturday, if people are interested. I'd rather they go to a quality living environment, but any fish that are not adopted will be re-homed to various LFS in the Elgin area, as I'd like to break down their tank.

I also have a small number of assassin snails available and I would be happy to include one for free with every pair of plecos adopted.

These fish are still juvies, and cannot yet be sexed.

Feel free to shoot me a PM and we'll set something up. I've given out quite a few of these fish from various clutches before and always found it rewarding.

-Kelly

Here are the aforementioned plecos:

Ignore the terrible cell phone shot, but it's not helped by the fact that the tank is unlit and the mopani wood turns the water quite yellow.

Still available? I could use a couple. I'm located in Wheaton so not far.

Yep, I've still got these guys - I can hold onto them for you, and I should be home both Saturday and Sunday this week, if you'd like to pick some out.

I could do Thursday or Friday night - I don't get home from the office until 730-8.

I'd have to get a full count, but even if I save a couple for 'squatch, I should still have 6-9 juvies.

I'd like to thank Redoynx for coming on out and taking home a 6-pack of assorted plecos, lol. It was good meeting you and I hope you enjoy them.

I haven't heard back from 'squatch yet about coming to pick his up, so I'll say that I have 4 juvies left - 3 browns and one albino, as well as one large and very fertile male, in brown, if anyone is really interested.

I'd LOVE to break the tank down this weekend, if I can - but if anyone seriously wants some fish and needs me to hold off, I'll do it.
