Eleven months for a blue ring is very good. If you do a google search, or contact your local fish supplier, you should be able to obtain one easily, though it may be June before they start to arrive.

Of course, I don't really agree with importing animals that are basically unsustainable in the aquarium trade. Have you thought that maybe a captive raised bimac might be better?

Your local aquarium store would be your best bet for blue rings. They are rarely sold online, but your LFS should be able to order one for you.
