im assuming from price wise the zebra plecs are very rare ..

seen a zebra frog ..but it aint a frog so whys it called that ?? how rare are these ?

alot of friends have different panaques but im unsure if these are plecs or classed as something else..

and ive seen something called blauage ancistrus which im told are hard to find .

then theres the super reds lol had to give them a mention ..

Most of the true wild BN's,
ranunculus, temminckii, triradiatus are all hard to find not many stock them
as for pleco's I'd say L236 is on if the most sought after plecs
L46 Zebra are expensive yes but most peeps know where to get them for a price
however L173 I think are one of the most expensive small plec with prices in region of £200

I didn't know you could get fish from abroad. Where do you order from? How do you even find foreign fish suppliers? How do they cope with the longer shipping?

Sorry so many questions!!

it must be ive been trying to get these for around 10 months now and their never on any of the lists. i first thought the propper name was sp rio paraguay but im told their not the same fish although they look the same to me.
im not sure their called sp orange i think thats what the germans call a l144 i will try and find out though
