I'll check for ammonia frequently, as you suggest, Rekonn. Thanks for replying!

I have pondered the ethics issue of exposing the other two new fish to ich, when they may not have it themselves. However, it seems like whenever I go to a LFS all the tanks are linked together and at least one of the fish is showing some ich. This leads me to believe that every fish I buy is more likely than not to carry the parasite. Is it unwise to treat prophylactically?
