striata not all getting fat together

I've been reading posts about wasting diseases and loaches, and wonder how much disparity I should tolerate in my new zebra loaches (b. striata) before I get worried. I have six, and they all started out the same size: three are definitely fat, one is just plump, and two are thin, but not wasted.
The thin ones are the bottom of the pecking order, I think.
There seems to be enough food for all, but the fat guys are more aggressive. Is there anything to worry about if they're not growing, as long as they don't look like they're wasting.
