Sickly Striata\Zebra

I am new to loaches. I bought 4 striatas\zebras locahes in North Platte NE. I then put them in an insulated cooler and travel to Denver CO. Approx trip was 3 1/2 hours. All the striatas survived the trip however after about 1 week they began dying off rapidly. So far 3 have died. I have seperated out the lone survivor into a 10 gal. hospital tank. Here are the symtoms. Weak, extreme hiding(more than usual) lack of interest in food. No visible damage signs, no white spots, rents in flesh ect.... What is wrong with this loach? He cannot keep himself striaght when swimming...it is a constant battle of left and right.

Thanks =)
