    I've never seen a BN go for $500, that sounds like a Zebra Pleco.
    They sell for around $10 near me.

    I know one of my LFS has an albino b.nose pleco and I think his price was around $20. They were only 2-3 inches and still very young.

    My LFS sells them for around $10 each. I've got two and they do a good job.

    Here, my LFS went from $3.95 to $9.95 for a 1" BN in 12 moths. My other LFS went from $12.95 to $ 20.95. 2 - 3 inch common plecostomus's went from $30.95 to $49.95 in 6 months.
