Q about skinny disease

I have searched the archives but haven't found the information I want on the "skinny disease" and hope someone could help me with that now.
I have had clown for 8 years or so and about a month ago I got the first signs of illness ever. Two out of seven got thin (the tiniest ones) so I treated with something called "Aqua furan" which works on both grampositive and negative bacteria. These clowns died a few days later. Two weeks after that two more got sick (a tiny and a rather large) one of those died yesterday and the one remaining doesn't seem to get any better.
From what I read here it must have been the "SD" and my main question is: Why do they get it? Is it because of bad water parameters, stress, being lowest in rank or what?
