Here is a link of some fish that may intrest you, im sure you can google them and find a online store that sells them and see the care, colors of them. P.S this is a chain i go to pretty much once a week. they get new fish twice a month and this list will change. on the 1st of the month and the 20th is when they get their shipments.

Check this site out, you'll be able to find more than you could ever want here.
Just do the research before you bid.

Not sure if Frank has the fish you are looking for. Frank's Aquarium-Freshwater Crustaceans, Hillstream Fishes, Gobies, and more
I have bought from him before, a great person to buy from. Highly recommend.

Richie, try PMing Byron.....He is a fellow Canadian and might have some suggestions for good importers in your country....From what i understand, customs and live fish is a hassle for the average Canadian to have shipped......I could be wrong about that, but trying in country for you, might end up being cheaper for some rare fish your looking for.....Good Luck

Yes, FP is right, importing fish is not that simple. As you're in Montreal, check out Oluiver Lucanus' business, here's the website:
I don't know if Oliver sells retail, I suspect he does, but you can email him from the site.

There is also Canadian Aquatics here in Vancouver, and Chalres Lan mails fish all over the world from here. His website:
Charles posts new imported fish every week through the BC Aquaria forum: http://www.bcaquaria.com/

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
