That is a hard fish to catch, also difficult to breed. It needs a large tank, six foot at least, and 2-3 years to reach maturity. Jeff Rapps or Don Conkel would be your best bets at getting some.

They do not have a nuchal hump. Maximum size in the wild maybe 8 inches, 10-12 inches in captivity.

Might be worthwhile to put together a shipment of verifiably "pure" new world fish.

I'll bet you're not the only one in your neck of the woods who would like to have them...
