Excuse me, but please talk with complete sentences and no text talk. Zebra plecos are mainly carnivorous from what I know and will require a much larger tank. They are fairly easy to breed, again I've only heard this. I'd do a planted tank with driftwood and sand, with a single school of dither fish.

Zebra plecs cost nearly $500 on live aquaria and nearly $200 in some other places. So you are talking $600-$1500 in those fish. If one was a breeding pair then I can't even imaging a price for that...

675 sounds more realistic actually if bought very young from the same person. Pics will confirm though.
