I thought that it's likely that the rest of you loach people are into catfish also and may be able to help out. I've been trying to find a mail order source for bristlenose ancistrus. I want to get a pair - hopefully L59's, but I've had no luck at all. None of the LFS's in my area can get them for me as a special order.

I have 2 bristlenoses now but they were bought when I saw them and I was never able to find the same species again to buy another. They do just fine with the loaches and are the best algae eaters (for algae on the glass) that I have ever seen. I have never had to clean the glass on the tanks those 2 are in - and besides - they are awfully cute!
