L46 "Zebra pleco" shouldn't be to hard to get a hold of if you are ok to order them and collect them at nearest airport. (garanteed live arrival) Might want to wait untill it get a little warmer in Nova Scotia.

Do you want me to post some sources that ship them to you.

Demonshark: They are among the more common of the rare cats and are not that expensive, although not cheap.

Last night i was on aother forum .do do with plec only. they said they some out there and they sell for around $200.00 ea. bit high for me, but by fall i should have some. i would need a pair, becauce i going to try to spawn them. they seem to think, that with what i know about spawning fish, i should have no problem spawning them. can i get them wholesales, anywhere out there?

I had missed that they had banned the collecting of them during the time I has been traveling. When I left sweden 2 years ago they were readily vailable for 30-40$ and quite commonly breed.

I did find some for 250$ but that is as you say a bit much.

I have found a breeder in spokane but you would have to get in line to get some and I don't know what she charges for them.

Guess you just have to wait until this fall ;-)
