My kuhlis are all dead!

I just got three brand new kuhlis at a petsmart in Tulsa. I brought them home and they acted fine. A week later they are all dead from the most horrible ick I have ever seen. I treated them and did water changes until they were so weak that I thought water changes might be too stressful. The ick ran its course in about three days, and they all went to fish heaven. The funny thing about this is that the yo-yos that were in the same tank were completely unaffected. I know they must have had it when I bought them and I didn't see it, but for it to have been that bad (they were covered with it), I would expect my yo-yos to have it too. Are they just tougher than kuhlis? Should I expect another outbreak soon?
