Valentines gift for my girlfreind :)

so instead of buying flowers this year that always end up dying, i went the fish way (just another excuse for me to get new fish), she loves Plecos and i found a guy that was looking to sell them. after doing alot of research i went there to get two gold nuggets but when we got there there was a small zebra colored pleco in the corner of the tank which she fell in love with instantly, so i did some quick recon on my phone (thank goodness for internet on phones) i know that the zebra is a snub nose(you will see in the picture) and she thinks that is even cuter that way i made sure he didnt hear that otherwise the price might have went up. I didnt plan on getting it but when she saw it in the tank she fell in love and was able to convince him to throw it in for and extra as long as i bought the Gold nuggets at his full asking price. so in other words 20$ as that is what i had gotten him to take off of the Gold nuggets.


i thought i would show off but at the same time i would like you guys to let me know if i got a deal?

here is the pictures of the Snub nose Zebra, is it a true L-46?





Here is the pictures of the Gold Nuggets. are these true L-18s?

first one.




Second one



i paid 80$ for all three. was this a good deal?

thanks for looking
Brent

Very nice fish! I think you definitely got a good deal and at the same time raised the bar for the rest of us guys. Thanks buddy. lol

It looks like a 46 to me, but there are similar looking plecs and the head shape is different than those that I've seen. Check out the catalog at PlanetCatfish • home of aquarium catfishes • PlanetCatfish.com.

thanks! yea from all my research i figure that it is a snub nose, something that is not genetic just caused from being poor water conditions when they are fry and the egg shell being too hard to get out of without denting there nose.

idk, from looking around it seems like the bulldog(snub) nose are worth less but to me it looks amazing even with the lack of nose. im glad to find out that i made a good deal as well! that makes me even happier with my purchase.
