I believe a fish store that you'll enjoy is "Skoolz of Fish". The owner is nice and will usually try his best to find fish that people ask for. Does frequent updates on his list of fish he currently picks up on facebook as well. Has some nano fish and shrimp as well.
Not exactly an answer to your question, but you might look into joining the James River Aquarium Society. They have periodic meetings (I've been to their all-day auction in October). Some of the members raise some very cool fish.
