It's always a good idea to research a fish before you buy it. You never know if you are going to get accurate information from the person selling the fish to you and using the internet or reading a good freshwater aquarium fish book beforehand is always a good idea. Know what you want to keep and have a plan for stocking your aquarium. Never impulse buy a fish at the pet shop.
Also be sure to follow proper acclimation techniques such as using the slow drip method if there are differences in water chemistry between your tank and the tank from which the fish originated.
