The tiger botia looks unique. Another suggestion I have is the angelicus botia

Really? my lfs sells them when they have them for about 90 a piece

But i really like the Green Phantoms and the Blues.....they stand out really well
the Gold Nuggets are really cool as well...sadly those are way overpriced here as well

If you have $500 just lying around, go for a zebra pleco.

Zebras are just the hype right now in the pleco hobby

It's all about supply and demand

In 15 years they will fetch the same 100$ ballpark price they did back in the 80'S when they were first introduced to the hobby

Your green phantom is stunning. The op wanted exotic and color wise, the zebra is what I came up with. Also, like you said, with supply/demand it's prob in the top 10 of most expensive fw fish right now.
