Yellow tail

Has anyone ever had or does anyone have a buccochromis rhoadesii? Any suggestion on a good place to get one?

Yellow tail

Ordering them from Petco?! Ah man thank you for providing me with a good laugh this morning.

Buccochromis rhoadesii aka Yellow Lepturus aren't terribly common in the hobby. The best places I can recommend to get them from are:

www.davesfish.com
www.wetspottropicalfish.com

I know neither of them have them in stock currently but I would email them both and see what future availability looks like.

Also I hope you have a large tank ( 180 gallon +) available for these fish if you are serious about obtaining some because they grow to be 16" long.

Be prepared to spend some $$ too depending on the size of these fish they can be pretty spendy plus shipping will run $30 + . Big Malawi haps are worth every penny though in my experience, I commend you for wanting to stock something outside the norm.

Just as a side note if you aren't able to find them and are still on the hunt for a big yellow hap I'd recommend Exochochromis anagenys. They stay a little smaller 13-14" and the males get an awesome blue mask when they spawn.
