Great!! Glad to hear your getting a test kit, I think you'll find it will help out a lot.
Its sounds like maybe your fish store isn't the greatest, ich, pop-eye gosh whats next? Are you still battling the ich? What treatment did you use? Its best to use salt and heat when treating for ich unless you have fish that do not tolerate salt (Your cory cat) The ich is definitely your pet stores fault, but the pop-eye could be a combo of the stress from the disease and treatment, or poor water quality, or even worse... Both.
You introduced the fish correctly for the most part. Next time after floating the bag to get the temps right, slowly add your tank water to the bag so half the bag water is from your tank and the other half is the water they came in. This will reduce the shock of introducing them to your tank. Good call on not putting the water from the store in your tank though!
Good luck, I hope no more buddies die!!!
