Looking for Corydoras Trilineatus

Has anyone seen any corydoras trilineatus (Leopard Cory, Three-line Cory, False Julii Cory) for sale in Chicago or the close suburbs? They are supposedly very common, but I have been looking for them for over six months and haven't found them anywhere. Lots of other corys, but no trilineatus. I have to have trilineatus because I am trying to enlarge an existing school, not start a new one.

have you gone to Old Orchard or Old Town and asked them to order some for you?

I asked Old Town once a while ago and they said they hadn't been seeing them from their suppliers, but I haven't asked recently. They're such a common fish that I figured they would just show up somewhere, at some point.

I've never been to Old Orchard. Is it in the mall? Is it worth going to the mall for? I haven't set foot in a mall for over 15 years and I'd rather not unless it was really worth it. I guess I could call them.

Thanks!

weird, I usually find them at Petco. I even got lucky once and found true julii corys once.

I've seen true Jullis at closest Petsmart TWICE in the last few months, but no Trilineatus. I finaly found some at Thee Fish Bowl (labeled as Juliis, of course).

Tropi-Quatics in Lombard can order fish for you if you talk to the owner

oh Goodness... you must go to Old Orchard Aquarium. They usually have or can get anything, Fresh or Saltwater.

I did go to Old Orchard and ask them. They told me that they never brought in the False Julli corys, only the real Jullis. They said they would look for me, though.

They did have more varieties of corydoras than I have seen anywhere. I just wish their tanks were a bit cleaner.
