When purchasing one make sure it's belly isn't sunken in, it's too late for it then. Watch it in your tank to make sure it's looking good, etc.

Here's a good read for you too: http://www.aquariumadvice.com/forums...sh-123776.html
Thanks, vary helpful, someone in that post said they can't get ick? Is this true?

The person who wrote that article is a very knowledgable person and I trust their opinion very much, but always be cautious.

If you have ich and lost your livestock I would consider that a major setback. After leaving your tank to fallow for 6-8 weeks don't let him be one of the first fish you add.

Mardarins are not known to get ick especially if it' present in your tank- They have a protected coating that fights some types of parasites like Ick- I know they can have an internal parasites since I had one die for no apparent reason. IMO- I wouldn't worry about it obtaining Ick.

From reading on other sites and personal experience they can not get ick because of a protected slime coat they have I don't know if anyone has taken one out of the tank before but it will slime up pretty good which tells me that they are protected in some way. I still think that they may get an internal parasite unless I am wrong- but I know for a fact that they are not acceptable to ick. HTH
