Hi! Ever since I started this hobby there has been 1 fish I have always wanted:
The green phantom pleco

I have always loved its colors and just generally thought they look cool. Well I am on my way to pick up a pretty large one (they say around 5”), and I am super exited

EDIT 1:
On my way home with him. I also ended up completing my eel colection (the three eels I have always wanted are: fire eel, tire track eel, peacock spiny eel. The last eel I needed was the tire track and they had one so I picked it up), I now have a fire, tire track, and peacock spiny eel. I also got a banjo catfish and a little bit of wagged lettuce (I think that’s what it is). I will post EDIT 2 when I get home and get them in there tanks, then I will also add photos.

Today the bewdish are settled in and all of them I have seen eat (including the eels), and first day in they are active with no visible disease. Here are some photos:

Tip photo is a banjo catfish and the bottom one is a Raphael catfish.

The eels seem to be friends

Well, that pleco was also the most expensive fish I have ever owned. He was 55$, that was fun to pay for, lol

Isn't it interesting how much a color can change the price of a species? Like, do you a white discus for 100 or a red one for 75? Should be the same for either

I love your eels too, I had a peacock eel for a little bit but I guess I don't have much luck with them or it was doomed from the start.
My dream pleco is a zebra pleco, unfortunately they're so expensive I could sell my entire discus setup and fish to buy one, then not have a tank to put it in lol.
