Prophalactic Ich Treatment?

I picked up 5 of the Botia hymenophyia *Complex* Loaches today (4 seem to be closest to B. helodes, & the 5th somewhere between a B. helodes & a B. hymenophyia). They've been acclimated to the Q-tank.
For some reason-though I have 7 Clowns & 5 Dojos in other tanks that have *NEVER* (knock on wood) gotten Ich, I'm worried about this bunch for some reason...
It could be that the LFS's tank wasn't as *clean* as it could have been... (Lotsa mulm got stirred up when the store owner caught them.)
Maybe, it's just that I've been looking for this type of fish for so long...
Should I treat *now* for Ich as a preventitive measure?
Or should I just continually stare at them & worry about any (real or imagined) white spot that I see?
What do y'all do?
