Question help finding a synodontis longirostris (uk only)

hello everyone ,
i am a keeper of synodontis catfish and trying to find the giant spotted syno (longirostris) it grows to about 26 inches in the wild and hoping to find one in the uk about 5 inches or so that i can grow on in my 6ft x 2ft tank with a few other large syno cats i have ,
as i am in central england i would only be looking for sellers /shops in the uk ,
so if anyone has seen any for sale whilst travelling around the british shops can you please let me know where i can get one from.
thanks
kev .

Hi Kev.............have you tried ordering one through the various online distributers?..I notice that you are a member of "Planet Catfish"...Surely someone there would know of a reliable online source for fish.......
