me too. i mean, it depends, because i dont really need the plecos, but theyre really cool and i could use a larger clean-up crew, so its a question of how much i want those completely sweet lookin', useful fish vs. how expensive they are.

Thanks for the compliments. They are stunning in the tank!

AzFishKid and demosthenes ... I need your zip codes to calculate shipping. Shipping is based on weight and distance traveled by the US post office. I do not add any costs to the shipping price for styrofoam insulated boxes or Kordon breather bags.

Can these interbreed with a normal ABNP and if so do you have any females that are a bit older hidden somewhere? ( I know its a bit of a stretch...)

Beautiful fish.

Andrew they are still a bristlenose pleco, just a different species, so they will interbreed with any other BN no matter the color or species. But.....the L144's are not very common, months can go by and you won't find a single one for sale, so breeding them to a common albino would just dilute the L144 genes. I don't know what you'd wind up with crossing your albino with the L144 which is not an albino, its amelanistic. I don't have an older female for sale at this time. My breeding group is not yet fully mature so still waiting to see if I keep them all or not.

Thats what I was thinking...

Thats a good point.

If you still have any next week you might get a PM from me, but don't put any on hold.

That is an incredibly beautiful fish! I wish that I was already stocking my tank :(
Just let me know when your tank is ready. I always hang on to a few of the batch for several weeks to see how they continue to grow then sell them. And I have a new batch that is two weeks old. They'll be ready in about 8 weeks.

All orders paid for were shipped this morning. There are at least 15 short fins left.

I am so sorry RMC, I think I had a totally blonde moment. :redface: I did not think your post was for an order, but used as an example for the other posters asking questions. Please accept my huge blonde apologies. I will PM you a total and be glad to get them to the post office tomorrow.
