    Some of the members that have been on here a while may remember that last year I promised a fish to my hubby, Chris (mtsguy21) for father's day. The place I planned to order it from never did seem to get them in stock, and other things put this plan on hold. However after almost a year, I have finally ordered the fish so on wendsday they should arrive! 3 L239 ( blue panaque) plecos! So excited!

    Now if only I could figure out how to fit 1 more pleco into our final stocking plans for all the tanks...I really want a L200...

    That's why we ended up getting 3 instead of 1. It was $ 40.00 for 1 fish plus $40.00 to ship it or $100 for three plus $40.00 to ship( then the yo-yos I ordered added another $10.00 to the shipping)

    This is the web site http://www.wetspottropicalfish.com/ , but I contacted them through Aquabid. I was going to order from that pet place, but they are always out of stock on the things I want.

    ahhh wetspot. i've been tempted to order something through them...but they have a minimum order...and the fish i wanted, was like 9. haha. maybe if i need multiple fish i will..though i don't think i'd pay for the overnight/express shipping. i hope the arrive safely :) i'm going to have to look them up...just to see what is so great about them
