Unfortunately mainly wholesalers get these and ship to larger stores. An option is liveaquaria and fishybusiness who gets the rare and odd occasionally
Know this comment is a year old but this is not correct at least now. We have 3 and can usually get them regularly now. Maybe that has changed over a year. I have one in the 310g and he has been great so far. The other 2 are eating great also. We feed a very wide mix of food everyday so sure he finds something in LRS and other additives. We always add Brightwell Angel Additive also.

They are in season right now. Seems like a highly seasonal fish. Late summer fall being the best time to get them.

One of the reasons for that relatively deeper water angels tends to be more aviable in fall and winter, that the temperature falls in deep water and they go to shallower areas where fish collectors can catch them.

Also Another interesting thing that the Venusta Angelfish was successfully captive bred by Bali Aquarich.

I noticed that many fish or at least in the red sea are all fall spawners , I have seen many baby Angels and Tangs, and even mated pairs of angel regal angelfish last year when I snorkeled in the red sea
