Loach now sick after eating frozen brine shrimp.

My 14 year old loach(Moe)usually eats frozen blood worms, and tabimin. I fed him some frozen brine on Thursday and he has been acting poorly since. He is not eating and his "pinchers?" around his mouth seem to be closed frequently. I have to blame myself for this I think. If I remember correctly I tried to feed him the brine about 12 years ago and he got sick then. It almost seems like he's either allergic or can't digest them. He didn't eat this morning and I guess I'll try to feed him tomorrow morning. All water conditions are normal. I added a new lava rock(well washed)on Thur. also. That shouldnt be a problem right? All other loaches are fine. PLease help with any suggestions. Thanks. Steve
