Funny enough, I just bought a proven pair from the Rockford area. I'm definitely not selling them, but if you check the buy/sell forum of monsterfishkeepers.com there is a user named blacktuna that is selling red tiger mota fry and will ship. There is also some expensive growouts for sale on aquabid. Good luck!
My red devil passed recently, and I've focused on getting a red tiger mota as my next fish. I live in the Rockford area, but have had a chance to visit stores in Milwaukee (Aquatics Unlimited) and Hoffman Estates (Aquarium Adventure), but neither were able to help.
Aquatics Unlimited had an adult as a trade-in, but it looked to be pretty beaten-up by his tankmates.
Other than doing a $100 minimum order from Cichlids of the Americas, does anyone have any ideas?
