I would pay $100.00+ for that pair!! (Provided I had a tank a bit larger than a 55 gallon long. **Sigh**)

For a second I thought you were referring to the 55 mentioned in the post before yours! :P

How about just getting 1 common Pleco and raising him as large as you can, then post pictures online so people will stop using them to control algae in a 10 gallon aquarium.

I paid $500.00 for the pair back in the late 1960's. $100.00 would only cover the shipping these days I'd pay it again for that pair.

If anyone had a 1000g tank it would need to be a reef. Nothing else would suffice

I'd have to disagree, while a reef would be awesome I think a huge amazon tank with live plants, arawanas, a red tailed catfish and a whole bunch of cichlids and tetras would be equally cool, OR a native setup with channel cats, Bass, Sunfish, carp and a big Alligator Snapping Turtle. IMO it is possible to make a freshwater tank as cool as a reef if you do it right. (at least that's what I keep telling myself since I can't afford a SW setup )
