A rare Blue-eyed plec, listed on the auction site ebay with a starting bid of just 99p - and no reserve - has been sold.

PFK picked up on the listing at the end of last month. The plec was described by the seller as a "very, very rare 8" long healthy Blue-eyed Cochliodon".

After 17 bids, the 20cm/8" plec — estimated by the seller to be worth £1200  — had reached just £220 when bidding ended on Sunday.

Seems like someone may have got themselves a bargain.
