Most LFS will accept a deposit to hold a certain fish. The only drawback is they will also only allow a store credit if the fish dies. The better ones will refund though.

My LFS will hold a fish or coral for up to a week. Of course if the fish you want is a Percula in tank with 50 other fish and you say "I want you to hold THAT one" I don't know what the odds are that you'll get THAT one. But I think most LFS should hold a fish for you if you ask nicely.
