you are lucky you can even find them.  

here in nyc, at a local chain (a horrible chain which shall remain nameless) 
you sometimes find no-name apistos, usually ortmanni or steindachneri (i 
haven't figured them out yet), or the "opal borelli" (but they never put a 
name to them, just "apisto" or "wild apisto"), sometimes for $1.49 each.  the 
catch is, no females ever.  

there's another, more famous store which will get you cacatuoides, agassizis, 
borellis, viejita, panduro etc. for $49.99 a pair!!!!!

the above is based on my experience with manhattan stores.  although i live 
in brooklyn, i don't have a car to get around so i don't know about the local 
brooklyn stores, although there are many of them.  some stores deal with 
importers and could probably get apistos if you ask them but i don't have 
experience in doing so.
