Skinny Loach

Well, I went into my lfs today to pick up some glass cats, and they had a batch of 8 3"-4" clowns someone had dropped off yesterday. 6 were beauties, but 2 had skinny disease - boy, I've never seen such bony skeletal fish :-( I got the 2 ill ones, in the hopes that I can help them back to health and add them to my school, as the lfs doesn't really have the space to keep fish for long periods of time. I've put them in the q-tank, and (based on the lfs guy's advice) am waiting to see what they'll eat so I can start dosing them with his suggestion for intestinal parasites (piperizide???). They didn't go for the bloodworms tonight, but it's just the first night, and they are probably in a bit of shock from the double environment change
