    Yeah, ive been searching for ages. I think weve been defeated. It is a bit cruel for the fish though i suppose

    Do you have any fish clubs or societies in your area?  Even in the states, this is the best way to get the fish you want.  If you get them from fellow hobbyists, you know they are probably very healthy and have been well taken care of.  They are usually cheaper, and you don't have any shipping!   :)

    I can swap all the common ones with my mates but i was looking for some rarer ones. im actually considering going out to lake malawi and catching the buggers myself. It would be much quicker

    I don't know if you will find what you are looking for, but I have seen live fish for sale on ebay......... i have no clue how this works, but I'm assuming its overnight delivery.
