Bacteria Probs For Kuhlii Loaches?

My LFS received a good number of Kuhlii Loaches a few days back. Already, I've noticed a number of them will rapid gill movement and some die off at the shop. Water quality could be an issue here, but I'm thinking that there may be a bacterial infection due to shipping stress/transfer. Have others seen this in Kuhlii shipments? Any ideas what type of bacteria this *might* be? Guesses are accepted. ;-)
