I am pretty sure there is a couple of Pleco breeders at the boston aquarium society, but i have no idea what type they breed.

You can go to our meetings and ask around =D!

PM'd you with the contact info
For one of the breeders at BAS.

they often have bushynose pleco out in western mass at Dave's in Hadley or Northampton

However, i highly recommend this place... very nice shop and also often have a variety of pleco:

petco doesnt stock them around my area, and petsmart is the only one that "has" them but they havent stocked anything other than albino....

Depends how far you're willing to drive - BAS meeting or New Hampshire Aquarium society meeting would be one option. Unique Aquaria usually has brown in stock, and I suspect that Uncle Ned's Fish Factory does as well.

Try Pet City in Seabrook NH. They get them from a local breeder and thet usually have them.

if you really want some, you should attend the auction at the NEC this sunday,

I have 2 non-albino BN's purchased from Unique Aquaria a couple months ago (their last 2 at the time) - they're gonna cost you though, if you're still looking...
