BTA is probably what I'm gonna go with. Though it's hard to find really large ones these days...

There is a section in the Selling and Trading forum: http://www.reefcentral.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=5
But since you don't want to ship I would recommend to try a local fb reefer group.

They didn't have them in the tanks above the frag tanks - those are only for tank bred clowns. The bicinctus were in the old inverts system.

While diving in Hurghada, Red Sea, I saw A. bicinctus in Bubble-tips only.

Found an interesting paper on the effect anemonefish have on anemones. The study was done on A. bicinctus and E. quadricolor (BTA):
Effects of anemonefish on giant sea anemones: expansion behavior, growth, and survival

Quote:
Abstract
The symbiosis between giant sea anemones and anemonefish on coral reefs is well known, but little information exists on impacts of this interaction on the sea anemone host. On a coral reef at Eilat, northern Red Sea, individuals of the sea anemone Entacmaea quadricolor that possessed endemic anemonefish Amphiprion bicinctus expanded their tentacles significantly more frequently than did those lacking anemonefish. When anemonefish were experimentally removed, sea anemone hosts contracted partially. Within 1Ė4 h in most cases, individuals of the butterflyfish Chaetodon fasciatus arrived and attacked the sea anemones, causing them to contract completely into reef holes. Upon the experimental return of anemonefish, the anemone hosts re-expanded. The long-term growth rate and survival of the sea anemones depended on the size and number of their anemonefish. Over several years, sea anemones possessing small or no fish exhibited negative growth (shrinkage) and eventually disappeared, while those with at least one large fish survived and grew. We conclude that host sea anemones sense the presence of symbiotic anemonefish via chemical and/or mechanical cues, and react by altering their expansion behavior. Host sea anemones that lack anemonefish large enough to defend them against predation may remain contracted in reef holes, unable to feed or expose their tentacles for photosynthesis, resulting in their shrinkage and eventual death.

Perhaps not as hard to find or not as expensive as Bicinctus, but I saw some nice melanistic Clarkii for sale in Sacramento today. Too bad I don't have room for a pair of these.

I started ramping up the salinity in their QT to normal last weekend.
Today I notice that the smallest of the 3 was breathing labored and a bit apathetic. The large ones seem fine. Prophylactically I gave them all a dose of Septra. I may also need to give them a formalin bath after all...

The heavy breathing of the little one stopped overnight with the Septra dose. He also went back to normal behavior. But something is still bothering them all as I saw them "cough" and scratch themselves.
I don't think it's Cryptocaryon, not after 2 weeks of hyposalinity and without the other typical symptoms.
It also doesn't really fit Brooklynella or Trichodina, the usual suspects with Amphiprion. Though I'm gonna give them a formalin bath anyway, just for good measure.
The other things I worry about are velvet and flukes...
