In a 10g bare tank in a local lfs in Jersey they are selling what they call "Stingray Plecos"! They are obviously hillstreams, but I am not sure which type. They have a pair of buttercup yellow with dark brown spots on their backs and what look like the same color stripes in the fins around the body. Another pair is green-brown with light spots and a single one that is the largest (@ 2") that is predominantly green-brown with lighter spots/stripes.
Unfortunately, I didn't have my camera, but I think I'll go back later and try to get a pic or two. I'd love to bring the yellow ones home but all I have is my 30g goldfish/frog/weatherloach tank with coarse sand and rocks/wood. the current is fairly strong
