Anyone give sick fish back to the store?

After you got your fish in quarantine and 3 weeks later it starts showing signs of itch. Do any of you guys just give them to the LFS and have them take care of the sick fish?

Well a while back I had an itch brake out, and ended up loosing all my fish (7 fish) except a blue green chromis, while treating them with hyposalinity. I called the store and the owner said he would take him and treat him with copper, in one their hospital tanks. Just wondering if this was an option for some, I know most you guys don't...

Itch? No its my fish and. If I'm going to trust it to be free of the parasite I'm treating it myself.

I think most LFS would be happy to take any livestock you'd like to give them.

A few will give back store credit (usually 50% of what they re-sell it for).

Many LFS do have QT environments set up. Mine offered to take some of my load, they have copper, UV, prazipro, and paraguard in the system, not necessarily all at one time.
