I have two cloan loaches, two yo-yos, and a kuhli loach. The clowns are the newest additions. I purchased 2.5" loaches so they would be a little heartier. One of them is doing realy well while the other is not eating anymore. It is shrinking away and looks nothing like when I bought it. I have read about internal parasites and this sounds similiar. I am considering treating it with Levamisole hydrochloride if I cant find some but would like to know if the other strange behavior matches the parasite theory. The fish spends alot of time swimming on its side on the upper 3 inches of the rear of the tank and shows no interest in food. Occasionally it will liven up for a few minutes and act normal and shoal with the other loaches but still will not eat. I am afraid his time is running out and want to do so
