Buying Calvus and mixing with Frontosas

Does anyone know a good place to buy Gold or Black Calvus online? I looked all over, but they're out of stock on most websites. Live fish direct and liveaquaria is out of stock too. My LFS sells 1" black calvus, but at 44.99 each I can't afford to build the Tanganyikan tank I want. How long does it take to go from a 1" fry to a breeding size? I saw a place an online store on ebay that sells them for under $20 and on Buy African Cichlids online and learn how to Breed Cichlids by species but I'm not sure if this company is credible or just some breeder selling out of his garage. Lol... Any recommendation? And will small calvus fry be compatible with frontosas that are about 3 to 4 inches? Thanks

Altolamprologus calvus or compressiceps are EXTREMELY slow growers, will take at least a couple years to grow them out, minimum...

What size tank is this going o be?
