    The guy I ordered from on Aquabid said he only got males from his distributor as well when I asked. There are some places online that get fiddler crabs from time to time: Check out www.franksaquairum.com. And I think I've seen them listed at www.liveaquaria.com, but neither has them in stock now. I don't know if they'd get females, but if you can order online, you might email them and ask what they can get and when they might get it.

    It's sucker-mouthed fish, of which there are many varieties. Most are peaceful, and will eat algae and food that's fallen to the bottom of the tank. But there are hundreds of species, and there's significant variation from species to species. Some of them can get quite large, like 18 inches plus. Here's a link to pictures of plecos at Planet Catfish -- all the ones with names that begin with L and are followed by a number are plecos. There's also a lot of confusion as to how to classify them.
