There is a scarlet pleco for sale on aquabid - though not nearly as pretty as the photo you posted!

I'd like a whole tank of these guys. They have so much character and come in all colors! This one was way too pricey-and huge already-how much was the aquabid one I wonder :)

Well, I just tried to retrace the website and cannot find it. It was large, full grown perhaps and I seem to remember it was a crazy price like 7.000 yen (about 80 US$)It is kind of unique.

Yeah, he is very pretty - a beautiful colour and I agree with TetraLover, he is kinda prehistoric looking too! It's too bad you can't get him Imogen, he is quite pricey though :)

you can't house more than one of those because Pseudacanthicus (not Pseudocanthicus as in the link) plecs are fiercely territorial and grow at least a foot in length.

Those are just beautiful? remind me of the blue trimmed Panaque plecs! The high price is because a lot of those are still newly discovered, hard to breed in captivity and as a result are still wild caught.

He would be great in a huge freshwater semi aggressive display!

His coloration is striking. I have never seen one, expensive too.

Well, perhaps one day I'll have money and space for a whole army of different kinds of plecs. Glad you all liked the find :D

:heart he (or she, i guess) is very pretty! i too have a very soft spot for plecs. my lil long john silver (ugh, i finally gave up and adopted my husband's name for him) is starting to show a bit pore personality. i never really realized how many different types of plecos there are and that some can be quite pretty. i've always thought they were neat though. that's the only thing i remember having in our aquarium when i was a kid. i really like albino bristle noses and would like to have one, but i think unless i order one from a lfs i'll never run into one by chance. love those lil sucky faces though :D Edited by fancygoldfishgirl

:D Yep, that's exactly what they are -little sucky faces with beady eyes! I have 2 albino rubbernose and I love them to pieces. Long John Silver is a hilarious name. Mine are called Ben (theres's affleck of black on his tail)and Alli as in alligator..see you later ....on that cucumber probably :D:heart

i don't know about albinos, but i saw mine change colors in the store tank. he's been pretty much the same here (figures) but i never realized they could pull a karma chameleon!
