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 :shock:

How big is your tank? :?

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.

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?
