Ohh... I'd love to have some.
Most of the species are quite cheap on Aquabid. $12-$15.
But a local source would be great. Except epiplatys annulatus I havent kept anything else.

The fall auction is coming up, I bet if you find any Killie fish at the auction you can ask around a bit and find out who breeds them. I have seed them there in the past. That is how I found Larry Brown, who has a ton of very nice rainbow species that are hard to find.

What a pretty fish. Did you get it off Aquabid?
If I'd come to Denver sometime, I'll definitely ping you

There is a small killi fish club in Colorado. Edd Kray is one person you might track down. Neptunes sometimes has a few pairs. CAS had a talk on Killifish in June. Lots of killi fish in Colorado. Always some at the auctions.

I was wondering this myself since that's what I want for my 29g, I'm probably gonna get them shipped anyways, but I would much rather deal locally.
