Rescued loach help!

I saw a sign for tank + fish $50.00. Stopping buy they had a 10 gal with 5 skirted tetras, 3 huge Goldfish (4 to 5 inches !)a armored cat fish and this huge loach. All of the fish where showing signs of illness. She had a out side fish pond that I told her to move the GF to now and that we had to do a water change right now if we where going to hope to save any of them. She had moved them out of a 55 gal 7 days before so she could put here new lizard in it. I told her that I had to go to a meeting but I would buy the loach and catfish for $20.
The catfish has fin rot so bad all that is left is spines. The loach is just way pale but seems ok. He is 7 to 8 inches long and about 2 inches tall. He looks nothing like any loach I have ever seen. He has a small pattern of lines that run all over his body.
