No it's cool . That's the point of the forum right? Ich can stay in a dormant form on fish for a long period of time. Same with in your tank. Once a fish becomes stressed it then shows as the Fish can no longer defend against it with their immune system. Basically what happened was the petco tanks had ich but the tang wasnt stressed so it didn't show. However, once you moved the fish from there tank to yours it stressed the fish and ich took advantage of the lowered immune response. This is why people use quarantine tanks as well

No stress coat doesn't do anything IMO.
