Skinny Clown Loaches

Does anyone know what causes Clown Loaches to get skinny and waste away? I had some a few years ago, and they just slowly withered away, despite eating normally.

Internal parasites possibly. If you see them eating but still have problems, that would be my guess. There are foods with medication in them that can be purchased at the LFS.

That would be my guess as well. You can also purchase geltek to soak the food in as some of the medicated foods are too large for some fish to eat.
