Its a L18/85.
gets about a foot.
lose spots as they get older.
few people have bred this fish.
Diet wise they are omnivores, so they will do fine on your frontosa sinking diet as long as its not pure meat based.
they have a wide ph range in the wild, so as long as your pH is below 8 they will be fine, but closer to 7.4 is good.

The queens are now at $656 with over 4 days to go.
Still not hit the guys reserve yet!!!

Damn, if only my queens would breed!!!


not sure what happened with these guys, the guy pulled them early.
either he got a great offer, or realized they are worth alot and got cold feet.

Queens and L174 should hold the value for awhile.
Zebra have dropped because they are being brought in in huge shipments.
I have my ideas on how they are doing that, but i have not got the confirmation yet.

All the other hypancistrus i recommended should also hold the value or increase slightly since they are not bringing them in, though there are a couple people breeding them.

Queens, L174 and Zebra are still the top hypancistrus to get.
Next would be 411 and 400.

66 and 333 are the next level and are holding value.

Though "WC" 2 inch Zebra can be found for $100 now, here is 3 female L260 queens that are at 425 with 2 days to go.
I'm guessing based on past auctions for female queens, should reach about $600.

I have one L134, he/she is a beautiful fish, I wanted to get more but haven't made it back to Spencer since I got this one. Spencer said that he can only get them every 18 to 24 months. I had some on hold but as I wasn't able to get there I think he sold them, they no longer apear on his weekly stock list.
I paid 54 cnd for mine and am wondering if this is a good price still if I find more. I may be able to get back to the peg next week Wed and hope to drop the trailer and bobtail into his store. Maybe, just maybe he still has a few in reserve...

thats about $52 USA.
a good deal.
The USA range is about 40-60 just depending.
they are not super hard to find here.

Not sure about shipping to Canada, but best bet is to see regular sellers on Aquabid, best seller there is Snook, he usually has the best selection of plecos.
