No got them from someone in Stonehaven, £50 the pair lol. I know the first fish is about 4 years old and the 2nd about 3 years. Bought them from a divorced couple, it was his fish, but she got them with the house. Kept them for about a year to see if he wanted them back, but did not, so saw the advert in the local paper selling "2 x black and white pleco type fish unsure of exact name". Told her they were nice fish and what does she want for them, said make me an offer, I said a £100 pound each, she almost died and said there only fish, how about £25 each.

Didn't argue with her too much.

:P

Meeting Francis at end of month in Edinburgh to pick up his 3 x fish. I think ones a female and the other 2 are males that he is selling. But will fatten them up and see if I get better photo's. Need to learn how to take better photos with my camera first, or will get my old man round as he is good at that type of stuff and has the right equipment.
