Greg Micelli from Little Africa Aquatics and Butch from South East Cichlids can get them for you. I also know that Florida Tropical Fish Direct has the Xenotilapia Papilo Msalaba and the Xenotilapia Bathyphilus Yellow Fin Isanga. They are just difficult to keep because you can only have 1 pair and they need a large tank.

I will also reiterate these fish are difficult to keep . like tropheus they are susceptible to bloat . Also they will not tolerant changes in water conditions well . But yes Butch and Greg are both great folks , have never had a problem with either .
