I'm looking for a Bellus Angel. I'm having a hard time finding this fish. The LFS has been trying for awhile to get another one back in, but they haven't had any luck. The other LFS can't get them or never heard of it.

Where do you go to find fish that are hard to get? I've found one at PhishyBusiness.com, but it's pretty expensive. Almost, double what I could buy it for at my LFS (which is pricey to begin with) if they could get it in. It really isn't worth that much. Anyway, where else should I look? I've tried all the vendors on here that have their own forum.

Any suggestions?

BTW, I accidentally posted this in the New To The Hobby forum. Mods, feel free to delete the other one.

Thanks...but the one is sold out. Also, MarineCenter is really expensive. I'm not sure why when most places charge $80 - $90. I guess because of the availabilty.

marine center keeps their fish for weeks for you, and makes sure they are eating in captivity before selling it. DEFINTELY worth it imo, especially for a fish like the bellus, which is a deepwater fish and often can run into problems when first adjusting to life in captivity.
