Ixitxachitls were brought into 3rd Edition with Monstrous Manual II. An Ixitxachitl Cleric of Demogorgon appears in Elder Evils.

Do any other 3rd Ed sources feature Ixitxachitls?

Are they really the same as BECMI's Devilfish?

Have you tried Stormwrack?

Stormwrack barely even mentions them. The Planar Seas section mentions that they inhabit Demogorgon's plane of the Abyss, and they appear in the random marine encounters tables at the back of the book, but that's pretty much it.

If you check the 1E Monster Manual where they first appear and compare it to the Master DM's Guide entry, it seems pretty clear that they are intended to be the same creature. Frank Mentzer I think buffed them up a little bit (increasing the number encountered, notably) and PC3 gave them a bit more depth (and introduced the devilfish warrior), but yeah- they're the same thing with some minor differences.

Same with the Shark-kin and Sahuagin, as well as some other notable creatures (Such as Yowlers/Yith Hounds- though, oddly, they were given a separate entry in the Mystara Monstrous Compendium even though the Yith Hounds already featured in one of the other MCs.)

They appeared in the 3.5 D&D Savage Tide Adventure Path, specifically...

Dungeon Magazine #139 - In the first adventure of the AP, there is one encounter with a few of them in the final dungeon of the adventure, which is the Lotus Dragon Thieves Guild. They have an alliance with the thieves.

Dungeon Magazine #143 - In the fifth adventure, they appear in the random encounter table in the local waters surrounding the Isle of Dread.
