Sick Loach

Hi. I'm new at keeping Loach's and am having a problem I can't figure out. My two Clowns just got over a bout with ick, and they seemed fine after treatment. (I used Quick-cure) Now, a week later, one of them just hangs out almost virtical in the tank, and his tale fins are looking ragged. He did eat some today. I do water changes every week and just changed the GAC today. (I had it out for the ICK treatment) I treated with Aquarisol today, as I usually do once a week. The temp is about 77. Maybe I should raise it to 80-85 for a week? Any Ideas?

Thanks in advance
