He might've been stressed out, causing him to get the ich. Your other fish probably have ich too, it's just that they're healthy and can fight it off. Feed food that has garlic so it would help them fight it off.

He has ich from being stressed out and no, don't blame it on one specific pet store lol. If you see signs of ich on a fish at your lfs then don't buy it. Ich can appear from a number of reasons and it spreads like wildfire...well maybe not that fast.
