i took a piece of texas holey rock out of the 1.5ft tank and replaced with driftwood for the L333s when i put them in there to grow out. The texas hole rock was put int he 4ft tank and the bristlenoses were all over it like a rash giving it a good clean. tonight after work noticed the L144s head pocking out a hole and a skinny female albino bristlenose sitting on top of the rock. she wasnt skinny thismorning lol

On special from LFS so I can't say. They got a big batch in a couple months ago. There was only 2 left in shop when I went there. The original price was $44.95 each
