make sure you take ample time to examine the fish you want to make sure it has no spots, ragged fins, etc. and dont be afraid to pick your fish out and tell them that you want a particular fish.
I'm bad at this, and really need to start doing this a lot more. I have been jipped of fish because I don't count, and I've gotten some not so good looking fish as well. I even got 2 platies and a guppy, when I just wanted the platies. I guess I feel bad, cause usually the people getting the fish are young, probably not making much and probably don't even know better? I feel bad to double check. But I really need to do that. This is most common with the LFS that I frequent the most, is probably the largest, but generally appears to have good quality or what I feel are "happy fish".
