should i get my cleanup crew from this lfs?

well there is a lfs (the only close one to me) that has a pretty good sw fish selection, but almost all of their fish are in a divider tank and they all are connected and i have seen a couple of the fish with ick! which means they are all more than likely infected...my question is, would it be ok for me to get my cleanup crew from these tanks? i have heard that snails, crabs, feather dusters ect... dont carry it

30gal / 2: maxijet 600s / 150w heater / CPR Bak Pak2 (maxijet 1200)/FOWLR

30lbs base rock
6lbs Brazilian LR
35lbs sand (20lbs of lfs ls i think it cycled my tank faster)

3 blueleg hermits
4 turbo snails
royal gramma
gold stripped maroon clown

You are correct, ick will not be carried by inverts such as snails and crabs. If you're worried about the LFS's water just make sure not to get any of it in your tank during acclimation. You could also look online, some sites have nice clean up pacakges and some such as etropicals.com has free shipping on certain packages.
