yo yo loach

I have 2 Yo yo and 2 clown loaches in a 26 gallon aquarium. All my loaches are doing just fine, with one exception. I noticed about a week ago that one of my yo yo loaches has a really fat little belly. This is a tank that I keep 3 small discus in, so for a period of time i was using live worms. I think the yo yo loach really munched a lot of those down, and he appears to have a bloated stomach now. I have heard of this condition on some cichlid websites. If you are not careful what and how you feed, your fish can develop this condition. Anyone here know what I can use to remedy this? Right now, I am only feeding some wardley algae and/or loach wafers for my loaches and corys ( i have 2 small corys as well) Occasionaly, the loaches will munch up some brine shrimp, which i think are fairly harmless.
