2. The eye should be clear and full not milky and sunken.
3. Gills should be bright red rather than muddy gray.
4. Fish should be free of any slime other than the slime-coat over the scales..
5. There should be a fresh smell, not an unpleasant one.
6. Scales should lie flat and be bright and shiny.
