I do remember you and the fat goldfish! Glad to hear they are doing better. Kinda like human, they have to watch what they eat in the winter, too!

Other than that all we have is a Petsmart, although there are a few mom & pop fish stores in Roanoke, too.
I've actually been to that pet store and thought them pretty good. Last time I was there they did have kuhli loaches, but I haven't been back to check in like a year or so. I need to go check them out again when I'm up in the are in a few weeks. Thanks for the tip!
