7" Clowns Loaches Sulking

Hi, 3 1/2 Weeks ago I found a pair of 7" clown loaches in a very professional shop. The shop said they had been raised together and would not separate them, ( which I did not want to ! ). After a gentle transfer to the tank, they refused to eat. I read the article on worms/parasites, and in leiu of the drug mentioned, ( I could not find it in Belgium), used some anti worm/parasite drug from the same shop,( Camma cell ? ), twice. I even bought 5 other clown loaches to keep them company ! The five wee ones ( 3") are darting about and enjoying themselfs in the 50Gal tanks, but the two big guys sem to sulk all day long and half heartedly nibble at the odd blood worm now and agin. I want to see them wolfing down food!

I am new to fish, and loaches
