I was in Mississauga today. The Dragon Aquarium had L-116's and L-201 Plecos.

 

The Aquatic Kingdom had some foot long L-600's at $1200 and some nice pure white and black L-333's for $90.

I was there last weekend Dragon's stock is really poor quality and a lot of them I noticed were sick

 

Aquatic Kingdom Is out to lunch selling none 7 pointer L25 for $1500 I think they need to look at the market price a bit more and price accordingly or all those l600 and l25's are gonna sit there for years

In a week you can medicate and do a lot to a batch of fish especially in a week when your working full time with them

dragon's l201s have been there for months, and awhile back the store seemed to be hit pretty hard with some sickness, they looked brutal. that group in particular seemed to bounce back well.

 

the l25s were nice but crazy expensive. other people online are selling large ones for $350.

Super red l25's don't cost that kinda money I think they are still back in 2011 where they had that good shipment and charged crazy prices and ppl bought but the markets not there anymore it's sad

A good L25 7pt at 29-34cm) can sell for 600.00 maybe a bit more. Unless it is from Sao Felix not Xingu but even then I would feel pretty happy about getting 600.00 for something that size!
I see L25's 5pt for 750.00 in Calgary and L14's at 25-30cm for 700.00 and I sell them to the petshops! Lots of fat on those prices. Just like aquabid. A lot of inflated pricing - this forum seems to have realistic probing for sellers and buyers. Remember buying fish and importing fish from the US is not difficult as long as the US seller can prove and send the origin paperwork with them. Easy to clear and get them thru customs with the proper paperwork.

I have got 2 very nice L600s (pair)  from Curtis at a very good price when you compared to Aquatic Kingdom's. The shipment went perfectly :).
