(Out in the NW burbs) Aquarium Adventure in Hoffman Estates sells them from time to time. I bought a nice group of apistogramma cacatuoides from them a couple years ago.

JUst there today, their 35% off sale ends sunday. plant selection was rough but fish variety is always good and prices seem fair.

clean store, employees, ime, are friendly and sometimes know what they are talking about

The selection is pretty awesome! Their prices are a little high in my opinion, but I still buy stuff there occasionally. Plants are hit or miss... I have grabbed some of my favorite plants here that i cant seem to find other places, like madagascar lace. Like most LFS the staff knowledge level is also hit or miss so dont expect too much.
