Ever seen a Roloff's Barb?

Im beginning to think that their rarity is truly of an immense magnitude. :scry:

Also i have never been able to find out much about these, its as if no one knows about them, and when i try to research them i get nothing, or i get pointed to another fish.
The Roloff's Barb (barbus roloffi) is usually considered to be the same as Oreichthys cosuatis but i dont think these two are the same. And if im not mistaken theyre from different areas. Not to mention look different because one is clear and the other isnt

Anyways i guess i was just looking for confirmation from others (all of you experts :P )
Are they even available?
Because ever since i saw one in a book once i fell in love and was planning to make them a future choice in fish, but when i look around in the LFS's or even on-line i get NOTHING.

Thoughts and opinions please:hmm3grin2orange:

Look around online and find a dealer that has them. Then ask your LFS to order them from there. Then you can go and buy them from there.

Would love to see pictures if you get them. Guess I could go look them up online too :shappy:
