sick loach! HELP!

I have what I think is a banded loach for approximately 3 yrs now. He is about 3.5 inches long and has been in good health. This past weekend, we started to notice a white splochy film on his sides. Almost like he was shedding skin. I did a water change and he seemed to be getting better. Today he seems worse and the white film has gotten thicker and covered almost his entire body. I thought he was dead tonight and went with the net. But he reacted and went to the back of the tank. I have two fat kuhli loaches that seem completely healthy and the rest of my community tank seems so also. If anyone has any insight, I would be greatful. I do not want Tiger Boy to die!
