Where to buy Yoyo Loaches

I am considering buying Yoyo Loaches online because they are so expensive at my LFS. Of course, I don't know how much the retail for online either, but I did not see any on www.liveaquaria.com so I thought I'd ask if anybody could suggest a retailer to me. Thanks!

I would just buy them locally. Keep in mind that the shipping charges will likely be $25-$30 in addition to the cost of fish. Mine were $10 each when I bought them here. What is your LFS charging?

They were chargint $15 here. Like I said, I didn't really have anything to compare to before about 5 minutes ago. I just thought it seemed high compared to some other loaches I saw.

Nelsonville, eh... I'll have to look into that. Do you remember what they were called? That's not too bad a drive from where I'm from.

Edit: Any of these?

Locally for sure....I just picked up three yesterday at an LFS for $2.50 each...I am sure that shipping alone on a half-dozen would not be as little per fish as that.
