A bargain isn't always a bargain
I bought this pleco 15+ years ago for 99 cents he was about 3/4 of a inch in size
nice bargain right , I think not I was told way back when he would only grow to about
2 1/2 inches , well 15+ years later he is now 18 1/2 inches and has cost me way over $300 in tank upgrades,
If you think it's a good deal it probably isn't!!!!
this pict was taken 2 1/2 years ago when he was only 16 inch ,
he just keeps growing and growing and growing if he don't stop soon I'll need another tank

Got my 180 litre tank it was 25 Euro (about 35 dollars I think), came with decor, filter, light. Just needed gravel and to build a stand. 2nd tank a 110 litre bow front with stand, filter, light, heater for 50Euro. Both going well, fingers crossed
