To buy? Where are you looking??? 12AX7s are probably the easiest tubes to find.

If you can't find them in the amp, they're the smallest tube, quite easy to spot out, they're probably covered with metal cases.

I've had tube amps for a while now, but never actually had any go down on me

How come i can only find the 5u's and not any of the 12ax7's?

What? On a Dual Recto? You have a Dual Recto and cant locate the pre-amp tubes?

Yeah... they should be easily spotted. Those amps have plenty of tubes.
The preamp tubes are the smallest.

^ Like said above the 12AX7s sometimes have metal casings over them. They look like metal cylinders.

If by "clean" you mean "get a finger right up in there and do a good bit of spelunking" then i guess "at any given opportunity" is my answer.

there we go...i think it looks like metal tubes w/ threads in them?

those threads are springs pushing down on the tubes. to take them off, push down and twist until a notch in the casing lines up with a cut out section that matches it, then it'll come out.
