Catfish wish list

Post by Phoenix.L »

I came here to ask about a couple things and then decided why not just post the long wish list, including things I have that need more friends, things that you don’t really see everyday, and things that border on impossible to source. Maybe I will get really lucky and people will know where to find some of my really rare dream fish. If you breed any of these or have a lead on where to find them please do let me know.
Will make a donation to the website for every one that I am able to obtain because of this post :)
Thanks!

If you're willing to buy fish that are shipped you can get many of these species fairly readily. https://www.wetspottropicalfish.com/ is a very good example. Also AllOddballAquatics on https://www.aquabid.com/. I'm guessing you don't want the whole list all at once! :-)

The other thing is I am not sure what a lot of these catfishes are, for example Ocelot pleco. Where you haven't done so, can you list their scientific names? Green gold Corydoras for example could mean a bunch of different things. Your LFS will be able to readily get a few of these too, for example Brochis splendens or Corydoras reticulatus.

Oh no! Not the whole list at once. It didn’t seem likely that I would find more than a couple at a time.
I have extensive special order lists at both of my local stores, they come up with something from time to time. I would always prefer to buy from a person than a store if it is an option though.

Check Dan's Fish.com as he has Ocelot and Parotocinclus Jumbo. I can verify that his Pitbull Plecos are of pretty high quality, as I bought 6 back in November as juveniles, and all 6 have made it to April. They're even breeding for me. No idea on the gender ratios for the breeding report, though. They don't spend much time on my glass and they've darkened to match my substrate so if they've got saddles on the males, I don't see them.
