    New wild caught L-134's in a 20 long. I have 9 new 134's in quarantine now that I am going to use as a separate breeding group hopefully in the near future. This piece of malaysian driftwood has a hollowed out cave in the middle that the largest ones have claimed.

    Nice, though I'll bet they left a scorch mark in your wallet. I have 15 F1's growing out, hopefully some will start spawning within another year.

    Your right Todd, they don't come cheap. But what else is a guy going to do? LOL..... Good luck with the F1's. You may have better luck getting them to breed than the wild caughts. I haven't had any to breed yet. I have 8 in my original group that hopefully will be breeding in the spring. The 9 that I just bought, I'm going to keep in a separate group for now. It will be at least another year probably before they are ready to breed.

    Sorry I'm late getting back to this post. Wild caught L-134's normally run around $50.00 each. They can be more or less depending on the size.

    Beautiful! I hear they're less reclusive than many pretty plecs. Do you find that's the case or more would hide if there were more places?

    Now that a large number of the species from Brazil have been taken off the banned list the prices for WC fish may drop a bit. If so, some of us will be cursing the inflated prices we paid... :swear:
