I've been looking around for 2 weeks!

Petsmart had it for $2, i picked up four!

PJ's at $4.99 in richmond
Islands at $3.99 last time a check, at least they told me that price, but had none!

Let me know if you find some =)

Saw some at Roger's the other day and also Aquariums West - not really cheap, ($4.99 and $3.99 I think) but nice fish at both places. I like to buy otos from Aquariums West because they get them captive bred, so they don't have that die-off problem that you get with wild-caught.

IPU Burnaby still had lots left last I checked at $3.99. They've been in there for a few months now, so I don't think there should be a big problem with them dying off or anything.

i usually get it from April or north america pet store...even had some from multiplex on hastings...and yah...they seem to not do too well(not sure if they are starved or the water conditions..or stress)...maybe i should try aquarium west next time...they are usually like 2-4 dollars each...maybe even look into king ed to see if they are cheap

I never look for cheap otos above any other fish because the cheap ones are usually starved and don't even last the night in a new tank. Aquariums west takes good care of theirs, Aprils would probably be my second go-to (although farther for me) and one of the local importers like Canadian Aquatics, My Fishy Friends of Fraser Valley Tropicals would probably have cheap AND well-fed ones.
