You're right, unfortunately. It's been 99.9999% Cichlids and salt until recently.
Luckily, it's cheap to ship everything to Louisville so you can order most of what you need for less than the rest of the country. UPS Worldport helps with that, I think.
I've only used local shops for the occasional plant (sometimes there'll be a cool crypt that's mislabeled and underpriced) and for staples like dechlorinator and driftwood. When it comes to livestock and plants, you can get healthier, more sustainable and more affordable stuff from this forum and various retailers online.
