Talking Thanks for the warm welcome

So...
as a kid I fell in love with pleco's. Through college I had a 5 or 6 zebra's in a 20 long, back when they were affordable and available. Then, my supplier ask if I wanted and "Sunshine", 2 to a box, he never saw one seen before. I said yes and got my first L14, 12" long and was obsessed, that was 1993.

So, now its 2017, my dream came through...I have my 300g, 10' long tank, with matching wet dry filter & FX4 running with 2 wave makers, and until this week I couldn't buy an L14 for all the money in the world! This past week Bluegrass Aquatics had four 10" show up, I bought all 4 and so far everyone is doing well. And today, I found a mislabeled L14 at my local fish store, 1.5" for a steal! his belly is concave but hoping to save his little world, as we know their natural habitat as well as many of our favorite pleco's is in major damage due to the new damn on the Xingu. So my aspiration is to breed them, duplicating the L46 conditions just on a massive scale.
