Just to provide some closure for anyone else reading this posting.
First, thanks for the information folks. It's greatly appreciated.
So, after the original post, only one of the original four fish survived. I took the three dead ones back to the LFS and they replaced them with Powder Blue Dwarfs (the remaining Rainbow Dwarfs looked kinda weak).
As of today (about four days later), all four fish are doing fine. I even added some plants (fake for now) and they all seem to be happy. So now I have 1 Rainbow and 3 Powder Blue. Unless you look closely, they tend to look the same. I'm happy with them.
Moral of the story. I'm thinking I just got a few bad fish that couldn't handle the acclimation or were just weak. Looks like that happens more than we realize.
