I don't believe so. Their numbers however are threatened in the local stores because only one store within 75 miles of here ever has em and even then they only get them in every few months.

Yes they are and they are banned from export as well for that very reason. The only L46's you should be able to buy are tank bred ones and\or fish that were exported before the ban which will now be fully grown as it was banned 3-4 years ago i believe.

That would explain the great difficulty in acquiring them then.

One of my "local" stores has most of the rare plecos.
I designed their website, so I get some free fish, and nuggets, blue powdered, and zebras are DEFINATELY on my list. 8)
