Of course, if you've had your 'fix' and have decided that these aren't the fish you hoped they'd be, well. . . there are plenty of fish in the proverbial sea, lol! Will the shop give you credit or replace those fish, since they know that they came to you from them with ich already? Worth asking, I'd think. . .
chesh you hit the nail on the head there just reading back not been keeping on top of this post lately
i asked what size the bala's where because my friend had a very small baby go missing the only thing is his tank that would eat it even if it died is his clown loach and plec but his plec is mighty small and a doubtfull suspect try to get them at a bigger size also DO NOT add new fish 2 weeks either side of adding the bala's as bala's get extreamly stressed for some time after moving home and are very prone to infection of many kinds after they have settled in and like there home you would have a very hard time to kill them.
I hope this helps and hope you do try again and susceed with the bala's as they are truly one of the most facinating fish in the FW world
