This species does seem sensitive to skin complaints. I think the only thing you may be able to do is accept that they don't like your local water and keep another species. This is what I have done. It seemed like the perfect fish for me, but no. I have been very successful with a range of other species but not this one.

Clown Loach are often referred to as Clown Fish on this forum. I should know I've been keeping them for 25 years and I've been on the forum for 10 years.
