Illness Weather Loach *PIC*

My girlfriend recently picked up 4 Weather Loach's this Monday ( Nov 10th ).

What is going on is I noticed that two of the fish have lost there top fin's and there is a white film/growth where the fin once was.

What is this and how can I help the loach.

The tank is a 29 gallon with some other fish, Zebra Dainos, Clown Loachs, Green Barbs, Pterygoplichthys, and two nickle size Green Pufferfish. I did a water change Sunday.

Any clue whats wrong? ph ( 6.0 -> 7.0 currently )? water temp ( 72F -> 78F ) ?

I look forward to someones reply. This is my first time using this list. Thanks.

PS: the brown blob in the lower right is a plant bulb. And the turtle is plastic :)
