Default Xenotilapia "kilesa" anyone kept this?

hi, Anyone kept this Xenotilapia "Kilesa" before?

The blue luminous light on the head really caught my interest for this beautiful fish.

Anyone selling this or where can I find this? What is the market price?

I used to keep a pair, but found that they do better in groups.
Now I am keeping a small group of the "Black Throat".
Here are pics of the Kilesa I saw in a farm in Pasir Ris

Vincent,
Here are the photos. These are recently acquired. The young male is just starting to display his breeding color. The throat area is not as "black" as a fully grown adult.
