Albino pangasius catfish shark

Does anybody know where to buy a Albino pangasius catfish online? I live in Edmonton, Alberta Canada and I don't think any local stores here carry these. :(

I stumbled upon this video and I just fell in love with the fish

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!

I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

I have a spare 75 Gallon but I would like to buy one as a juvenile. I understand that these can get pretty big and I`d be upgrading my tank as time goes by.

Most likely that those who would sell such fishes, assuming they were responsible fish owners ,or retailer,would only do so If you had a large enough tank to house the fish as an adult .
Tank would need to be several hundred gallons to acomodate the fish as adult and filtration would need to be be equally capable of filtering several hundred gallons.

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.

Elvis, I would agree you buying this fish if I am sure that you plan to upgrade your tank or already have a concrete plan ahead of that. You will find that even in the monster fish forum I mod, many folks there are against buying monster fish without concrete plans. Yes, they have a lot of experience in that field and if you ask them, they will disagree with you buying that fish at this point.

I don't have a concrete plan but I'm sure I will have some time to figure things out especially if I buy it when it's only 1-3". How long would it take to outgrow a 75 Gallon tank? What size is that tank in the video roughly, can anybody take a educated guess?
