Abandoning the idea of breeding the Zebra Pleco, I don't have the time and knowledge to keep them alive.

I have much to learn before I get any Zebra Plecos, I've been seeing a lot of deaths online, mainly folks who leave for a vacation and find them dead after their 1 week vacation. Glenn loss one of his while on vacation. So with awareness I am going to put the pleco tank off.
I will however start getting ready, with a matured tank, cycled and with fishes and plants able to tolerant the high temperature the Zebra Plecos require
Picked up this 55 gallon Acrylic, I will buff and seal as much as I can to make this my show tank for the Zebra Pleco tank.

I will liquidating all my current stock in the 240 to finance the Zebra Pleco breeding project.
I doubt I will get what I asked for, but I know I will get half, and half is better than nothing.
I will also be getting a 55 gallon acrylic to start the breeding project. I've decided to go acrylic do to durability, ease of drilling and how acrylics maintain better temperature than glass.
I will start a series of photo blogs soon.

After 20 years of fish keeping I've decided to take on breeding the Zebra Pleco. I'd be lying if I told you money was not my motivation. First an foremost these Zebra Plecos are no longer imported, and due to their nature of low batch, the maintain a relatively high price. They won't fetch the $100 per inch anymore, but still at $100 a fish is till a good return on investment.
