Petco also sells them and as far as I have seen petco only carries ADF's. That is where I'll get my next one.
As for escaping they are not as grand an escape artist as you think. So long as the water level is 1 1/2 inches bellow the hood (and if your hood is actually taller from the water) then they can't escape. They can't climb the walls and they prefer the water. The only time Bilbo has escaped me was in the small hospital tank. He got spooked and jumped out of the tank and ran around my room. I finally caught him after he did a full lap telling me he felt damn good. Nearly gave me a heart attack but it confirmed how sick and tired he was on that dinky 1 gallon hospital tank.
