Where to get an albino longfin BN pleco?

A member here suggested I check out the albino longfin BN pleco, and I did and I absolutely fell in love! So needless to say I want this fish so bad I can't stand it! Only downer is... There isn't any near me (I'm in the USA). Does anyone here know of a breeder I might could order one from and have it shipped or something?

I searched aquabid this morning and didn't see any long finned albinos, they either had regular BN albinos or brown long finned. I think I searched for bristle so maybe there are some under BN or some other keyword. Good luck on your search!

They have them frequently at my lfs in VA, usually around 15$ I'd ask your lfs if they can be ordered!

I guess I'm just a little worried about ordering online because of them having to be shipped and them possibly not being alive by the time I get them. I've looked at a few sites and saw that most sites offer a live guarantee but you have to pay a pretty penny for the live arrival guarantee, and quite honestly I would rather put that much money towards equipment for my tank or for multiple fish vs just one.

Sounds scary but the fish do just fine. Remember they were shipped to your pet store too
