The zoo here in KS has some fish that live in caves, they have no eyes because they live in the dark. It would make a very neat looking tank.

Don't ask me how to fined cave dwellers? Look in some caves I guess.

You might try asking a fish store if they can order some for you.

Albino corys? I don't know if they are blind, but they are white.

The store I work at stocks blind cave tetras, so they are definitely available. Might check with your local LFS

I saw all of those in a LFS once, it was cool in a creepy zombie kinda way. I think moonlight LEDs would help too.
