Sorry Graeme!

Just got the list through from the Thailand supplier, and although Vaillantella maassi are on there, I am unable to get them in due to the excessive price tag they come with!
They would cost over 20 each (!!!) for a 6-10cm fish, and we would have to order a minimum quantity of 100. So that would be a huge amount of my monthly budget blown, and I wouldn't be able to get much else in for the rest of the shop!!! If the minimum quantity had been lower, I might have been able to get them, but we can't justify spending that much on them at that price/quantity. It's such as shame as I was looking forward to stocking those :(
My only hope now is to find a wholesaler who will sell us whatever quantity we require - but I have to say I have never seen them on any other list :(
