Hi balderman,

Not sure if you are asking about the true Sciaenochromis ahli or Sciaenochromis fryeri? S. fryeri is quite common in the hobby, and called S. ahli for years. While the true ahli has rarely if at all been imported.

S. ahli location sites:
Localities: Chewere (Malawi, undefined), Likoma Island (Malawi, undefined), Masimbwe Islet (Malawi, native), Mdoka Reef (Malawi, native), Msisi (Tanzania, native), Taiwanee Reef (Mozambique, native).
