Visiting your favorite Fish shop is always an exciting activity for someone taking care of Fishes. The days leading to the visit are always full of excitement. Is there something new? Are my favorite Fishes available? What Fish can I bring home? Once you get to the shop, your excitement wanes because you are totally focused on the job at hand: to select a Fish. You scan the tanks, looking at every species. Carefully observing one tank and then moving to another, you try to look for that perfect Fish for your aquarium. Suddenly, you stop at one tank because a particular Fish has caught your attention. You observe this Fish ever more keenly. You check out the fins for any tear or signs of damage. You look at the scales if there are any irregularities. You scrutinize the Fish and his tankmates for any diseases like white spot, cloud eye, fin rot, etc. You assess his general health. You monitor his swimming pattern. If this Fish passes your personal assessment, you call out the shopkeeper and ask that he bag that Fish for you. You are smitten over a certain Fish you are willing to pay money you have worked hard for. You have just made a sound purchase. The Fish of your dreams is now on his way to your tank at home. Nothing can be more fun than this.
