are loaches (especially dojo loaches) scaleless fish? or do they have scales? cause i'm currently treating my tank with an Ich medicine that says scaleless fish could be sensitive to the meds, and im kinda worried. hes breathing rather heavily about half the time then randomly he will dart around the tank then come back to rest...its supposed to rain tomorrow...maybe thats it....

I believe loaches are scaleless. For the medication, they say to use half of the amount that is recommended(ex. if it says '1 tsp/10gal.' use 1tsp/5gal.) since the fish are extremely sensitive. I had the same problem with an old clown loach, but luckily it was still under warranty.
