I agree with you about Reef Encounter.....I just pop in there every once in awhile because they have some things you can't find anywhere else. Believe it or not, the couple times I've been in there, no dead fish. It does give the vibe of a not so nice place, but I can deal with that if they have assassin snails for a good price (and are healthy, of course).
If you are still looking for rams, Fish Hut had a bunch, different varieties, and they were priced to sell. It may be worth checking them out with this sale. If only my tanks weren't fully stocked.....
