    ive always wanted a b.nose pleco for my 55 gallon as ive researched the dont groe to be as huge as a common, the lfs in my last town never carried em, the town i currently reside has the but the cost is 31.99 is this the going rate for a bristle nose?

    allright i did some resaerch and found the b.nose pleco ranging from 4.99 to over 500 dollars, now im just curious what they go for in your area

    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.
