Yes, consider online. Barb you are lucky to live in the USA when it comes to online fish dealers. Shipping into Canada is possible from some (some will, some won't) but with the border issues and delays, more risky for me than for you. If I were in the USA, I would look into some of the highly-reputable fish dealers online. Two that come to mind, and they have "rare" fish regularly, are AnubiasDesign and Corys-R-Us. Both have websites. Fish species are seasonal, due to collection laws in various South American countries to preserve the species, but you can get any fish that is available. These firms deal directly with the exporters in Peru, Brazil, Columbia, etc. My local importing stores do the same, but of course the species they import are fewer than what the two mentioned firms handle in a year.
