A Pleco for me?

I am planning out my 75 gal FW tank and have made a list of plecos that I am interested in.
I want a 6" to 12" adult size but 10"-12" I will only consider extra special pretty plecos.
On my list I have the max size of each and prices from various online places (OOS means they are out of stock)
I will check at my LFS to see what he has.
If anyone can add to my list or knows where to get any kind of deal on any of them please let me know.

L17 FlatHead Gold Nugget 6"($25 @ exoticfinds.com OOS)
L26 Blue spot Pleco 11"($30-$150 @ exoticfinds.com)
L47 Mango Pleco 10"($45-$150 @ exoticfinds.net OOS)($39 @ thatpetplace.com)($79 @ liveaquaria.com OOS)($36.95 @ somethingsfishy.com)
L65 Blizzard Cactus Pleco 7" ($50 @ exoticfinds.net)
L79 Gold Snake Skin Pleco 7" ($95 on sale for $65 @ exoticfinds.net)
L128 Blue Spot Pleco 7"($25-$40 @ exotic finds.com)($59.95 @ somethingsfishy.com)
L160 Coffee and Cream 8"-10" ($55 @ Exoticfinds.net)
L172 Gold Heterodon Pleco 6" (exoticfinds.com OOS)
L177 Queen Gold Nugget 6"-8" ($20 @ exoticfinds.net on sale)
L200 Green Spot Pleco 7" ($30-$40 @ exoticfinds.com on sale)
L204 Flash Pleco 6"-7" ($40 @ exoticfinds.net OOS)($39.95 @ somethingsfishy.com)
L258 Paraancistrus sp.8"-10" ($200 @ exoticfinds.net)
L264 Salton Pleco 6"-7" ($30-$45 @ exoticfinds.net)
L333 White Line Tiger 6" (or yellow line)($45 @ exoticfinds.net)
L351 Panaqolus 9" ($50 @ exoticfinds.net)
L354 Large spot Oligancistrus Pleco 7"($30 @ exoticfinds.net OOS)
LDA33 Snow Ball Pleco 6"-7"($35 @ exoticfinds.net)

have you tried aquabid? some of the smaller plecos more people tend to breed them also. my first thought always is bring up planetcatfish for a research b there are a few breeders. glad you had the l numbers since common names tend to be made up and change from place to place.

Thanks for the replies.
The choice has been made. I bought 3 plecos.
1 L204 flash pleco which is residing in my 75gal and 2 L102 Snowball plecos, a male and a female with eggs, they are in my 20gal by themselfs until I see what happens with the pregnancy (is it still called pregnant with unfirtalized eggs?)
