Was it "The Wet Spot"? If so, its one of the coolest
fish stores ever. I think it may rival Ocean Aquarium
in San Fran. Steve(?) the owner is knowledgeable, i believe
they also run www.cichlidexchange.com.

I've had no luck with rams, always seem to lose one
of the pair.

Frozen bloodworms are good (get the hikari brand if
you can). My dwarfs relish live brine and blackworms, as
well as BBS when i have some left over from feeding fry.
A few will munch on small sinking pellets.  Frozen mysis
is good too and frozen gammarus if you can find it.
