Last I knew the Aulonocara Sp Chitande Type Masinje had not been offer forsale in the USA since 2009. They just became available the end of this month in a very limited amount.
You may be surprised how much it does happen. I belong to another site that an online seller used some pics from the members pics. It took them a year to get the pics removed off his site. Out of 200 pics 189 of them was removed. Some of the fish I have are very rare and there is not many pics of them available. So the chances are greater then you think.
I never said the chances were greater or lesser. What I said was what are the damages to you. Some schmuck lifts a pic? The world figures those guys out pretty quickly. The 5 fish you listed aren't really all that rare. Uncommon? Perhaps. The world seems to love bright red / orange and yellow peacocks over the first three types you listed. All of those fish have been available in the last few years from OWEF and are probably still in a pond down there. I wouldn't get too hung up on the rarity of malawian cichlids. There have been very few really new fish in the last few years. Slight variations in old standbys - sure, tons of those, but very few really new things.
If I could figure out how to load pics from my computer I would post some pics. It keeps telling me file is to big. I am in the process of moving my big tanks so I do not have time to resize them. 2 more tanks to set up and 2 more to move! LOL maybe by Monday!!
Load your pics onto Photobucket.
As for the Ethelwynnae, these guys are not that rare and it looks like I may be having a bunch of them too. I have some coming in a few months that will be my greatest challenge to date. Keeping it a surprise until I have the babies in a fry tank. I will have some fun posting pics of the parents to see if anyone can ID them. I also noticed today my Red Shoulder Female has her egg shute lowered so she will be spawning anyday.
