Problems with Angelicus

I have three of these loaches which were all brought together. One of the three flatly refuses to eat anything but live food. I can only get live foods 1 day per week from our LFs and i am sure this guy just starves himself until then..consequently he is getting thin. I can drop dry flake, wafters, pellets, right in front of his nose and he swims by. :(
When i first had the fish this one was more listless and inactive..he has perked up somewhat now and does swim about but i cant figure out how to feed him or get him to take dry foods. I dont want to use tubiflex because of the dangers ...so anybody got any ideas

sorry for the long post

oh btw i know my wter parameters are fine..nitrite 0, amonia 0 , nitrate 12.5, ph 7.5. I do 2 water changes a week an i am having no problems with t
