I don't see how Ilangis are rare, they are every where...You go on Aquabid and there are dozens for sale. My LFS have them for sale...


+1 for Namansi Fiery Fry.

They are everywhere - IN HOUSTON.

Rareness really boils down to location. I'm 3 hours from you, and I don't know anyone outside of Houston with them (that I can remember). There is one shop with them on display here but the are not IMHO in the best condition.

2nd! They're rare aside from aquabid, all the site sponsors, a few posts in the marketplace, ... I also know of at least three breeders/shops in my locale (outside of Texas). I'm too lazy to look through them but I would guess that they may well be the most photographed in our gallery too. Not enough wild supply to meet the hobby's demand? Sure; but that has as much to do with the demand as it does the supply. Yeah, I haven't ever see them at petsmart but I've only ever seen/heard of Duboisi there.

I have seen the Brichardi Mtoto a few times here and they have come in from New York, along with Ujiji and Ulwile. I know that Linangu are not considered rare but I don't know of anyone else around here that has them (they also came fron New York).

I voted for Annectens because Annectens itself is just one of several of the fork tailed tropheus.. and the term Annectens is not for one tropheus anymore..

My thought is that the Annectens Halembe is not often seen...

Just my two bits...
