Here is the scoop. Apparently a wholesaler bought 50 of these Myanmar Botias last week in LA and sold them almost immediately. I call up my LFS and ask about what species of Loaches he has. He told me that he had 2 specimens in last week!
Man, the one week I don't call in the whole year and I missed out!!! :-( However, he said that they sold right away along with 30 something Sids, and said that he will be getting more, because people liked them. They were selling $45 each though.
Then, I got an email just now from Aquariumfish.net saying that they could get these fish in at $2.00 each for a 1"-1.5" specimens.
I think this is a great deal, maybe once in a million years.
So, I am proposing to gather another group here at LOL to email Aquariumfish.net, asking them to stock this "Myanmar/Burma new Botia".
I think that if there are enough requests made, they will get this fish in stock.
Does anyone else want this fish as much as I do.
I am ready to tear down my 55 gallon tank, which has nothing but a few Catfish anyway in order to get 10-15 of these fish for 2.00 each.
Any one with me???

Let me know what you guys think.
