Skinny clown loach

The newest addition to my loach family is a 1.5" clown that I got 9 days ago. He had ich at the time, which seems to have been treated successfully. He is acting well and eating like a pig, but he is skinny. Seems like I can see the darkened outline of his internal organs thru his abdominal wall. I don't mean he is emaciated, but this is not something that I can see in my other clowns (they are fat pigs), but do not remember seeing it when they were smaller. He is still in the q tank and will remain there for at least another 5 days, but I am hesitant to move him because I fear he might have some internal parasite. Anybody else ever seen this in a small clown? Thanks, Pam
