I am looking for adult long-fin Albino BNP (preferably a trio, but can buy separate)

I am not sure where I can find them, so if anyone has any that they would like to sell or if any of the sponsors have some, let me know.

I am looking for a trio of 1 male and 2 females (I can also buy separate). I want to try and breed them in the 155G tank :D

Please PM me

I am looking for something like this:

I was thinking of putting them in my 75G planted first and once I get babies, I can move them in the 155G.
The 155G is empty right now, so it will be good to have something in there :D

I'll try Canadian Aquatics :)
Thanks

I'm sure Canadian aquatics have some but if not you could also try Fraser Valley Tropical Fish and Rogers. I am pretty curtain both have some.

I recommend taking a peak at the websites of the sponsors to see what they carry. You might find some deals for your self along the way.

I sent a PM to Charles about it. I will check out the other sponsor's sites too :)

There are no "blue eyed" albinos :)
L144 = blu/blk eyed BN Pleco.
They are yellow in body color but are not Albinos.
LF Albinos are also out there (red eyed), and approx 1/3 of the price of the LF L144s
Cheers!!!

I would "love" to get any 144 that anyone can find long fin or short. Pm if you find them. I will be in town for a few days and can pick them up. I will be addressing my hardness issues this weekend also.

Have you tried PM'ing Pat or Grant from IPU to see if they can bring some in? A guy on plantedtank.net breeds them and mails them out and they're beautiful. I'm just not too into long finned plecos....more into wild types (with the exception of Adrian's calicos, I couldn't stop myself, they were so cool).

who is Pat of Grant from IPU?

I am assuming you meant: Pat (mykiss) or Grant (Rastapus) ? :D

I've talked to Pat about it. I think I will talk to Grant and see if he can bring some in for me :D
Good idea!

I will also browse through plantedtank.net (haven't been there in ages)

Doh....yeah, I should check my typing more often. Fixed the other post. Or try April also. I think she's brought in long fins before, but not sure if they were L144 or Albinos.
