Tri-Mar down in Cornwall have a good reputation. I've not bought online myself though as i like to have a look at the fish i'm buying & pick the ones i want.

also have a look at rare aquautics in Crewe, Cheshire. They post too. They are a few miles from me and their tanks are really clean. Think they specialise in, plecs, and I think have been voted best LFS in north west by PFK. I would definitely recommend.

I have brought from rare aquatics a few times now excellent service and good quality fish. They sell some fantastic plecos but also do other tropicals.
