Botia rostrata for sale oahu?

Hey all. Today I picked up a new 5g tank setup off CL (thanks buddy!), already planted with some hair grass and moss. He'd had some fish in it but they weren't part of the deal so he netted them out before siphoning out most of the water.

Get it home, set it up, and fill it with water from the tank that the betta I bought it for was living in, and wait for it to settle down (it got a little shaken up on the way home). Go back and check on it a little while later and there's a fish swimming up and down the back wall! One of the fish the previous owner had kept had hidden himself down in the grass and escaped the net.

I netted it out and ID'd him as a ladder loach. Called the guy back, he wasn't worried about me bringing it back, so I moved it into the big tank and now I'm looking to find it some friends.

Anyone know of any store on Oahu that sells them or can get them in?

I think all store may bring um in it just depends on when they bring it in. I seen coral fish and Petland carry them. I seen petsplus and moanalua pets at one time carry them

Coral fish is usually where I pick stuff up, right down the road from my place and I don't have to drive down into town (no slight against the sellers there, but if I can avoid the traffic and "city driving" then I prefer to). I'll try them tomorrow, maybe make some calls if they don't have any.
