My supplier has 6 and I am getting 4.  Do you want to pop over and collect the last two?
They are $40 each so not that expensive.  The flight may add to the price slightly

Photos of the two pairs
These were taken late at night, so the ISO is really high.  Sorry for the quality
 
Pair 1
Female

 
Male

 
Pair 2

 
Pair one are both much lighter in colour than pair two.
The way these guys swim is a bit funny, they seem to swim in the small clown bobbing motion but with a more extreem up and down movement.  Almost like they are hopping along.
 
In both pairs the males are reasonably small and all of the fish appear to be quite young.  Hopefully with a year or so of growth, I can breed them
