Sorry about the black neons. Hope you can find some healthy ones soon.
There's a LFS I go to occasionally but rarely buy from because I so often see them treating their tanks with ich medication. One day when I was in there they had some really nice looking cardinals and I considered buying them. They would sell them, but without their 7 day return guarantee, because they had just recently arrived and were in QT.
Point of the story is - if you take the sick fish, I have no doubt they would tell you that you do so at your own risk and there would be no free ich medication or discount involved :o)
Having said that, however, I have no doubt you could get them healthy because you are such a good fishkeeper.

I wouldn't buy a sick fish.When I go fishing I just throw sharp rocks in the water and wait for the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.
I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
A moderator on a fish forum should be able to identify an oscar... Don't you think?
Dear naps, sorry I hated you so much when I was a child... Love me

Even though I trust myself to get them healthy over the LFS, I'm going to pass and get some from a more reliable source.
I believe in shopping localy when you can but our one LFS has gone so far down hill the last few years it's sad. The guy that owned it for years used to order weekly and would order whatever you wanted if he could get it. Than he sold to his manager and she was not bad for awile. Now she is not there half time and lets a lady that wears daisy dukes, with tats from neck to toe, has her teenage kids and all their friends hang out and her grandchild that's just a baby, sitting on the counter in a carrier. We are a small town, (3700 pop) three hours from any town that even has a big box store, so thats why I order from Oregon.

Good call on waiting for healthy stock. Even though you probably could have brought them around, you're much wiser to go this route. Hope you find some soon!
