weather loach disease carriers?

Has anyone heard anything about weather loach carrying disease? I have a strange fungal problem in my normally very healthy goldfish which share the same tank. The 2 loach are new additions - I've had them around 6 months. The loach are fine, but the golds have had fungus on their eyes and fins, which has almost cleared but I am wondering if the loaches could be carrying something? The fungus on their eyes is tufty in appearance and is something I have never seen before, the treatments have taken 2 weeks to clear it which seems a long time. Water quality is excellent and the tank is not overstocked. I look forward to hearing any ideas! Thanks, Nicki
