Skinny Disease....details needed

If you've seen skinny disease with your loaches how did it manifest? That is, how long did you have your loaches before it became apparent...and, did they look normal to begin with and if so, what was the course of the illness: what were the signs that brought it to your attention...like what did you see as a first sign (if you can remember) or is it simply a gradual wasting, depressions around the head area, hollow belly, whatever?

when you treated what was the success rate and how long did you treat and with what did you treat?

which kind of loaches did you treat for this?

thanks.barbara
