I won't buy a fish that my LFS
just gets in stock. I usually like to see that they have had them for a week at least before i get it. If you really want that fish and are afraid that someone might take it, see if you can put a deposit on the fish and have them hold it for a week. This way if they develope something, it will most likely happpen in the LFS
and you can avoid having to take care of it had you gotten it when it first came in. Just my 2 cents....hope your fish is doing well.
