I remember visiting that particular LFS when I was there for the Rainbowfish
Convention. They had some amazingly unusual fishes that interested me -
beautiful golden Pseudomugil gertrudae (from the Aru Islands I think),
Telmatherina bonti (which I had never seen alive before) etc etc
In my experience the length of time a display tank population of any species
is maintained in any LFS is likely to be less than 3 months and I'm sure
they could handle that before starting to go downhill.
