All the more reason to QT the fish. Under stressful conditions, fish are more inclined to ailments. Once infested, the new fish can easily pass it to the aquarium and be there for up to a week or slightly longer without you even knowing anout it.
Existing tank members are often stressed by new arrivals and possible aggression and can become infected if health declines at all during this time.
Please reconsider you options....
