Albino Bristlenose Pleco Feeler.

So I have a few too many ABN's and was wondering if there would be any interest in buying them on here?

I have between 3-6 that I'm interested in selling, about 1" in size.

Bristlenose plecos only get to 5-6" max so they are a perfect choice for a small tank (small meaning 20g +. They are pretty laid back and aren't interested in sucking slime coats off of other fish. They do well in a planted tank and will eat algea, fresh veggies, and other bottom feeder pellets, but do need some driftwood in their tanks to help with digestion.
They do best in "tropical temps" meaning between 72-80*.

Anyways, if you would be interested, please throw the price you'd be willing to pay for a single one, or what you believe to be a reasonable price. (or if you are interested in all, post the price you'd want to pay for all of them)

I am trying to figure out the best place to post these guys, I'd love to post them here, but most betta keepers only have small tanks, unless you have a sorority.

Anyways, thanks for reading!

Yes, short finned.
I forgot to mention, any proceeds will go to to my best friends family. Her dad died tragically 2 weeks ago and was the main source if income in the home. They are having a hard time affording food and don't know how they will pay their rent next month. They also can't afford to pay the funeral home. Things are really hard for them right now and Other than the spaghetti benifit dinner I'm throwing them at my dad's church, I don't know of any other way to help.

If I could trust my ALF not to be a total bully, I'd take one.

I would for sure be interested in one to add to the 30 gallon sorority. I was going to pick up a juvi albino BN at petco tomorrow but I would rather buy from you if it's not a huge price difference.

One hand reaches out and pulls a lost soul from harm. While a thousand more go unspoken for, they say what good have you done? By saving just this one... It's like whispering a prayer in the fury of a storm. And I hear them saying... You'll never change things...

How much do they charge at petco? I don't want to overcharge, but at the same time I'd like to be able to help my best friend as much as possible.
Let me know what you would be willing to pay.

I don't see bristlenose anything advertised on petcos website. are you sure you're not thinking of a common pleco from there? Now that I think of it I've never seen any ABN's or bristlenoses at all there.....
I do know that the pet supplies plus in my area sells them for about $12 a piece though...stopped in yesterday and checked.
