I guess abt $120.00-$150.00. If the round spots on its body come out more distinct, u can probably sell it for a better price.

For me, I would pay within the range of $120-$150.00 only for the L330 in the pic. You can certainly pay more if u really like it very much. A friend of mine paid $2,000.00 for a 14" + L24 SUPER SUPER RED. My friend is very happy to get it even though he also thinks he has paid a little too much!!! Well as long as u are happy!!!!

$100 and that's being nice to who ever is selling it.

It's pattern looks like old injuries have caused it to fade and look like it does
Just my honest opinion

I would say water quality and tank environment affect its patterns!!!

Yes but these fish once their pattern is rubbed off because of an injury ect it does not come back in the same way.
Other panaque don't seem to have this issue.
330 will also lose it's entire pattern if kept in poor conditions or black environments.
Others don't show this as much. In most if not all 27's it's the opposite. When stressed or sick they'll look very vibrant making you think they're healthy when they're not.

The chew chew are also very odd in a bad way on this fish

$100 is what you should pay max

I am being very lucky that no matter what pleco species that I have over the years, there are no permanent damage resulted from bodily injuries. Even after serious fight resulting in bleeding and even a complete loss of a small portion of outer skin, they all grow back to normal. That's is only my own personal experience. For L330s, if you have good water conditions and they are properly fed, they will show their nice spots. I got a trade of a super ugly L330 (see no spots on the body at all when I got it) sometime ago. After abt 6 months of recovery in my tank, it becomes a very nice specimen and I can count the distinct spots on its body one by one with no difficulty at all!!! To me, I believe water quality is the key for L330s.

Forget to mention not all L330s are 100% spotted. In fact, 100% fully spotted ones are just the minority!!!!

Yah, i agree with Jackson. $100 max. Not the nicest L330 I have seen. That being said, the water and the "mood" of the fish does change the colour allot.
