angelfish parasite?

so i have or i guess i should say had 3 freshwater angelfish. one died yesterday. i suspect that they have some kind of parasite. it seems as if it died of starvation and the others are unhealthy thin. not a sleek, angelfish thin. no matter how much i feed them they keep getting thinner. their feces are white or clearish also. i recently got some new plants about a week and a half ago. can parasites come in on plants? my water quality is completely fine. the tank is a 30 gallon tall and i do a 12-14 gallon water change every week. i have heard that you should feed garlic to the fish if they have parasites. but i will not do that until i have heard back from someone.
please help!!!
