Looking for Otocinclus

Any otocinclus breeders in the Raleigh area? I've read they are healthier and live linger if you can find them not caught in the wild (from a pet store) and no pet stores have had any for a while anyway.

The petsmart on skibo in Fayetteville has them. I got mine from Petsupermarket, also in Fay. Hope this helps.

I'm actually looking to find them NOT from a pet store. Hoping to find someone with a mating pair.

I haven't heard of a lot of people breeding them. You can buy some online for $2 per Oto at bobstropicalplants.com or msjinkzd.com

I intend to breed them tOo but their breeding looks almost accidental.
