I believe they have been successful raising (at least some) flamboyants in addition to bandensis.

So far, it seems they're only selling the bandensis. My LFS has been driving the 4.5 hours down there and bringing them back up rather than shipping them.

Thumbs up on your LSF. If I have my names straight (:old:) they offered the flamboyants (or were going to) through Drs. Foster and Smith (ie Live Aquaria - quite pricey) but they either had a crash or opted not to continue as I have not seen more about their availability. Since LA et al has been acquired by Petco, there is no telling what the current status may be.

They currently don't have flamboyants, and when they do they will be pricey - they just aren't easy (I have some at work though if you are in SF...)
They usually have bandensis and Laura is great.
