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!

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.

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...
