Sorry for your loss.
A few things that I do if I decide that I want a fish, I sit and watch hime for 15 minutes to see if he shows any signs of flashing, rubbing, etc. I also ask the lfs to feed him so I can see him eat. If its a new arrival, I put a deposit on him and come back in a few days to see how the fish is doing before I take him home.
Good luck, the Copperband is a cool fish, I hope you get a better result next time.

Sorry for your loss...the Copperband is one of my personal favorites. I have a good thing going with my LFS. The manager has been in the business for years and he is very kowlegable...never lead me astray. he is there to educate, not to sell. Good education with good customer service will bring back repeat customers and generate positive word of mouth. If I am looking for a certain fish, he will order it for me. He calls me when it comes in and I pick it up in the bag it was shipped in, bring it home and right into my QT tank it goes. This saves a lot of stress on the fish over numerious nettings and tank changes. He knows my set up and if I have a loss he just gives me store credit, no questions asked. Pick a LFS you trust and develope a good relationship with them and you will be surprised of the "percs" that come with it.
