I really don't know. I'm sure this guy selling the pleco is on the up an up.
I know in my state..It is unlawful to buy or sell anything found in the wild...ie: mushrooms,roots,berries,fish,wild game etc etc. There are some exemptions and many loop holes. Say I was to go to the river and collect driftwood or aquatic plants and sold them online. I could legally do so because the only laws on or "around" the river are for selling wild caught LIVE NATIVE fish without a commercial license. I can collect and sell LIVE fish as long as they are not native to our waters...and I can't sell them over state lines and I can't sell or possess more than 500 at a time without a permit. The law is totally different on frogs,turtles and crawfish.
