About 1/2-1/3 of the price here.
I have 2 the same age and size. They started in 170g together, but once they grew to 5 1/2 inches they began fighting. I took the Agro one out, and in his new tank he still hates any and all plecos no matter their size. The guy I left in the 170g is a pushover- I watched a small bristlenose challenge him for apiece of choko last night, and the sailfin backed off!! Lol
Mine don't eat wood- they even prefer rock caves to the driftwood ones. Mine eat ANY food I drop in the tank- algae discs, carnivore pellets, blackworms, fresh vegetables, seaweed sheets etc.
Basically they are very individual- try everything and see what he likes
