WTB, more plecos.
I'm in the buying mood so if you are int he selling mood let me know.
Titanicus, L25 Xingu Scarlets, L24 Cactus, small Sunshine, Sultan, eating Mangos, large Green Phantoms, Blue eyes, Zebras, and Xanto.
May trade from my stock as well. 1 very large Blue eyed from my collection may be traded for the right offer.
I have no clue on what kind of pleco I actually have, but everyone on the board has called them common plecos, I have one that is about 8 to 10 inches that I'm looking to sale. If your intersted just let me know. I'm from KY.
I'm sorry I'll have to pass. Shipping would defeat the purpose. I can get 12"+ commons everyday for free at my LFS. So many are sold at Petco without informing the new owners of what to expect that everyday all 10 of my good LFS's have to turn away commons.
hey, you still looking? i have a pleco that was given to me when my aunt moved. i'm not positive what kind it is. however the tank i was given with the fish is undersized for it, and would definately like to find it a better home. i live in the dfw area, im not positive if thats too much of a drive.
There are a lot of exotic plecos in Florida, (they get too big but owners don't want to see them die so they let them out into the wild here where they help destroy the habitat....bad LFS practice!) They should have mandatory buy back laws.... but knowing the government they would probably just ban plecos instead of dealing with them in a creative fashion.
If me or my brother net one, (I don't need a commercial license needed b/c they are exotic, and under no circumstances can they be released back into the wild). You can have them for free- I hate to euthanize them, but it is a misdemeanor not to, and my freshwater tank has a large rescued pleco already so I would be more than happy to send them to you for free. I always felt bad about it because it is not the fault of the fish, but the law is the law, and no LFS around here will take them, even by donation.
2 problems though:
1.) Usually the 12 inch plus common type. (When I say usually I mean by the hundreds if we have a full day going after wild tilapia another exotic fish that has choked our river). So it may be awhile for one of the less common species. Have caught a yellow bristlenose before, (not sure what they are called there, we aren't creative with fish name down here, in Texas I bet they have all the time in the world to think of creative names between bites :lol: j/k)
2.) I don't know how to mail fish.
Other than that though no problems. Eager to do it actually, always depressed after pulling up a lot of plecos. We got the same problems with cichlids too, caught a jack dempsey about a week ago, and flowerhorns are pretty common.
If anyone else reads this post, please stop people from releasing exotics, it really effects my state, because the tropicals can survive here. That goes for all of you living upriver too, they can swim down as the temp. drops and they do! Problem is those people aren't probably members of this forum.
Common plecos are destroying the banks of the San Marocs river near me. They burrow into the soft mud of the banks and make homes or nests. After time the currents will erode the burrow causing the banks to erode into the river. It's really a bad scene.
I heard Oscars are now a "sport fish" in FL. The goal is to have competitions to see who can catch and KILL the most of them for prize money.
LMK what you find if you do.
TL, if you could PM me a picture of your pleco I should be able to ID it and let you know what to do with it.
