Thu, 17 Dec 2009 00:00:00 -0500Check out the health conditions of the fish carefully. If you are observant enough, you can check out both visible and intrinsic health conditions of the fish.

If there is some fuzzy growth on the body of the fish, it is better left alone. Also check the areas under the eyes for any telltale health signs. Some fish would not 'look' ill, but they might have internal conditions.
