Loach Feeding Problem.. NEED ASAP HELP!

i have a big problem and i need help :)
I have 3 loaches in my tank with about 12 other different kinds of fish. I recently had the problem of ICH and luckily only lost one loach. It was because of this, that i bought the other two. My one loach was lonely so i brought him company.
Anwyays, these two new loaches (About an inch in size) dont know how to eat whatsoever. I mean, i drop flakes, and they swim towards it but never catch them in their mouth. I drop pellets, they just walk over to them, taste em, and walk away ( i think they try to wait until they get a little softer but all the other fish eat them before that). The past 3 days, they haven't eaten anything, and now just rest on the rock and dont move alot. They have gotten alot weaker and i'm getting afraid. How do i get them to eat?
Thanks in advance
