It depends on the size and where they are getting them from. Smalls are usually under $10, but large (especially full grown wild caught) may sell for $20. There are some fancier varieties out now like longfin albino, I may hate these but they may also be more expensive. There are also a couple species of bristlenose, so something like a spotted that may be available from time to time may be more or more marked up than a normal variety.

Haha I think the regular ones are kinda ugly. But I find the albino ones to be pretty. Especially the females. As they have little to no bristles

That is probably the best and cheapest way to get them.

I had one for a while, but I genuinely hoped it would turn out to be a girl because I also find the boys to be creepy looking. Lol. It died though. Now, I keep pitbull plecos and I like them worlds better.

I just think that they're cute in an ugly way. Kind of like a sphinx cat. :P also, there's a breeder in my city who sells 2 in + babies for $2 each.

I like the fish, but like you said to each thier own. I dislike anything albino. Weird I know but they freak me out lol and I have no care to ever go salt water. I like the fish thier beautiful and all but just have no interest. I do want to get a green dragon pleco they seem awesome too.
