These are very uncommon plecos. L236 the most so, I have never seen any in person. L174 and L400's there are a few around, but not too many.

L236 is a controversial Plec. Some think it is a natural Hybrid so the pic you see varies quite a bit:

Hi! That looks like my wishlist......

I hope you are ready to pay....I have seen someone in the past from Germany post in here for as much as $500 for a fry that is just over 1 inch.....and that is not even the WHITE mutation.

Carkichi has posted the Link about the controversy. The picture you see in the books are the White Mutation.

For CanadaPleco to mention that he has not seen any in person should speak volumes. Rich has seen and owned all kinds of pleco.

I haven't given up yet.

One day.....it will happen

Cheers!

Thanks for the replies guys :) At least I have the "wish list" up now. And yes, you guys are right... there seems to be a lot of disagreement around these plecos... I find the debate pretty interesting actually. would just really like to have these guys some day :) If you know of anyone claiming to have these plecos please post a link as I'm be curious to see pics for myself :)

I have asked my guys and they will look into it. If you are in the market for LDA105's or WC46's (2.5-3.5") I can help.

Thanks so much cjerrom :) I appreciate that. I have some 46's already and although the LDA105 is one of my fav's, it gets a little too big for me :)

How much are you asking for the WC 46's? What's the shipping cost to Ottawa K2K 2M6
eg 4-6

Thanks

Somewhat off topic. Please pm the user directly you are asking about pricing, shipping etc.

Thanks for the contact tobalman :)

@ Bwhiskered - Which pleco were you breeding? How long did they breed for before they stopped? Any ideas why?

I was breeding 174 and 201 for two years. They suddenly stopped and I can not figure out as to why. They get very excited after a water changes. My 066 spawn every few months with very little coaxing.
