These are a little-known and still exotic species; not likely knowingly or responsibly made available for sale. Some aquariums (and staff members -- professionals!) have had some success in studying them in captivity, but I don't think they'd be supported for the general hobbyist trade.

They have been observed off the coast of Nicaragua -- lots of good info here:
