Well the time has finally come for me to offer these beauties to my friends here at Planet Catfish. If you want to see how I came to this point, please feel free to look through the Journal I have kept on these guys- L183 Starlight Bristle nose Fish Room///.
I will be offering these up in groups of 6 fish for $180. Shipping is still something im contemplating (carrier wise) but right now I will only be shipping these USPS Express For $40. This will include the plecos being bagged in their own bags with some type of shipping aid (prime, bag buddies, polfill) in an insulated box. These will have a DOA guarantee too.
The fish will be between 1.5"-2" and are not able to be sexed. They are super active, healthy and vibrant and would be a very welcome addition to ANY tank that meets the requirement. Ancistrus dolichopterus is the species profile over at Planet Catfish so please read it and make sure you will be/can provide the proper environment.
Please, please, please PM or post up ANY questions you may have.
Here are some pics of my fish and the ones you could be getting!:bounce:

Thank you friends! They are very cool and beautiful. One of the really cool things is that they dont get too large, maybe 4.5" at most and since these are bred by me in my home they are more tolerable to water parameters and so not need the black water/super low PH conditions wild caught fish need. It may also make it easier for them to breed too but at this moment is only a guess since they wont be of breeding age/size for a while.
I might have 18 sold to a member of a Planted tank forum (TPT)for a group buy of their local aquatic group. Better jump on these quickly, they are moving quicker than I even thought!
