Best store for Rainbows in NoCal?

I'm trying to find some of the more unusual rainbows, but these are all I ever see: Red Irian (G. incisus), Turquoise, Boesmani, Parva, Dwarf Neon, Threadfin, Celebes, "Mac"; (actually. M. australis), and of course the horrible "Australian Rainbow" hybrids. Are there any stores that have other strains? M. trifasciata seem impossible to come by, let alone any of the other non-hybrid australians.

At Albany Aquarium (close to Berkeley) they've got:
Melanotaenia Splendida Australis
Melanotaenia herbertaxelrodi

In addition to the more commonly available ones at you mentioned in your post.

Check out their website for current availability:
