I agree completely. And would like to add that these fish must be put in a quarantine tank (QT) for at least 2 weeks so the sick fish won't infect all the fish in your main tank. Only after you have not had any illnesses, oddities, growths, or deaths for 2 weeks in the QT would I consider it safe to add the fish to the main tank.
