Azalea Aquariums has them from time to time. I got a group of Beckford pencils several months back.

Thanks, that's a species I like - I'll follow up with Azalea.

Not that this will be of any help to you in acquiring the beckfordi, but I can tell you a little about keeping them. I used to keep a group of about 9 in the retired 20 long; see them romping in the pic here:

Perfect Pets (now out of business) on Broad Street had them in a NFS tank but I convinced the manager to sell me some anyway. They are top dwellers and VERY lively. Spawning behavior will be seen constantly in a mixed group.
Hope you are able to get some locally!
