Could be your water - loaches are more sensitive to water quality than other fish. Test your water if you can and if you cant, a water change wouldnt hurt anyway.

Flashing is usually a sign of bad water quality or a gill infection - if he has no signs of ick then I wouldnt medicate yet. With what you said about the weekend blocks, I would suspect water quality...
