Re: Fish from Uruguay

There are no Apistos in Uruguay that I know of.  From what I know, they are found WEST of Rio Uruguay that separates Uruguay and Argentina.  There are 3 decent stores in Montevideo but you're better off looking for these fish at home (if you're in North America or Europe).  Getting fish out of Uruguay is also expensive and complicated. 

I have some young college student friends who are studying in Uruguay for a few months.  They have no interest in tropical fish, but I was thinking of asking them to try and find some apistos to bring back.  They are in the city of Montevideo, so I would think there are some shops or exporters around.  Are there any apistos native to that region?  And, would getting the fish through customs be too much of a hassle?
Thanks for any input.
