UUUGGGGGG, ICCCCCHHHH, I'm so sorry to hear that, Austin! I hope you get it cleared up quick, and that your newbies settle in well for you. . . it's funny, here the OPPOSITE is true of the chain shops closest to me. PetSmart has more or less healthy stock, while I avoid PetCo like the plague! Definitely go with where the fish are healthiest - that's where you want your money going, anyway. I prefer the (good) LFS here to either chain, and will often spend a bit more just to give them my support and keep them in business.
Glad you like the moonsand, I was wracking my brains for other suggestions for you, but coming up blank. . .my MTS burrow in TMS. . . not sure why yours wouldn't be, but maybe they are, and you're just missing it? I have rams in my TMS tank, they're substrate feeders and diggers and cichlids - no harm has come to them from the sand, and my loaches sift the sand through their gills, and seem healthy enough - I wouldn't be too worried about the angels, I'm sure they're allright!
