The Aquatic Kingdom has in at least 100 zebra plecos about 2 inches long. They look good at the present time. The price is $250.00 each or 3/$600.00

They talked about bringing in 100. All I know for sure that it is the most zebra plecos that I have ever seen in one place.

Maybe this is the 1st batch and the 2nd batch with bigger zebras could well be on its way...

There will not likely be a second batch until the first batch is sold. That could be a long wait.

I've got larger ones coming in 2 weeks. 2.5-3". Well they are arriving very soon, but I QT all my fish for 2 weeks at least before selling any.

Agreed!
But don't forget, life is full of surprises.
We may see more and more Zebras coming in at anytime cumplimented with lower prices.
If everybody hurries to buy then prices will go up. Not saying that you should not buy...

Umm not really the case at all. The season is basically over now and prices have been constantly going up not down. It's getting harder and harder to get them. And there is more demand for them then ever.

Could not agree more......keep remembering guys that they are not all coming directly from Brazil.

Ya but he has two for sure males there and the other two who knows.
The problem is here we don't buy zebs as a single fish. People buy groups for breeding purposes. So trying to sell extra males is not going to be easy unless someone needs two males. Its not worth buying the two males just to get the other two unknowns when you can throw out the same cash $800 and get 4 fish in hopes of getting some females.
Extra males don't sell well anywhere from what I've seen on other forums.

$800 is very good price. However, with all the zebras around it does not sound too good of a price... Rule of supply and demand. I bet you if it was earlier in the year it would have been sold. If I did not have my breeding group I would purchase it in a heartbeat. Also, to a breeder having extra adult males is not a bad thing for genetic diversity.

There are simply too many Zebras in the market now (too many in the US too) and so it may not be easy to sell unless prices are really really attractive!!! @200.00 for 2-3" seems not too attractive now.

The glut may dry up soon as the collecting season ends. In the mean time take advantage of the sales.

Could not agree more. Now is the time to add more to your stock before it becomes dry again.......
