i just did google them......same fish as the yellow lab..........Labidochromis Caeruleus.......is just a selectively bred color of the more common yellow.........Good luck finding them.......I live real close to one of the bigger fish stores on the East Coast and i never seen them for sale there..........Try contacting one of the cichlid forums and maybe someone is breeding them near you...Good luck!

i just bought x2 yellow labidochromis yesterday (yellow labs) anyways AquariumAdventure has tons of them might see if you can order from them. and jsut to mention the albino color isnt natural its a trait added by breeders.
