Baby Albino Long Fin BN Plecos

Well, the spawn has continued todo well and are now a little over an inch long - woo-hoo! Here are some pics....I have counted between 35-40 from the original batch I found in my 40G.

I have them now in a 10G with an Aquaclear 50 filtering it - these little guys make quite a mess Doing PWC every 3rd day and vacuuming daily to keep things tidy.

Feeding zucchini, algae wafers and today I am trying sweet potato.

Figuring I will take them to my LFS for store credit - any idea on what is a fair trade amount for them?

Thanks for any replies!

Clare

I wouldn't expect too much. Maybe anywhere from $.10 to $.50 a piece, but that still might be a lot. I am not an expert on selling fish.
