Clown Loaches

I have a 55g with 6 Giant Danios. I really want to get 4 Clowns.

Unfortunately, I have been treating the 55g for Ich for the past 5 days. I do have a 10g quarantine tank running that was set up last Monday, but there are no fish in it.

I was wondering if 2 clowns (store is ordering more) could be put into the quarantine tank straight from the fish store. Or should I purchase some other starter fish for it? I am hesitant to buy any starter fish because we only want the 6 Danios and 4 Clowns at present in the community tank. Buying a starter/s would necessitate keeping it/them (I get attached to my fish).

Any advice is most welcome.
