Red, puffy-mouthed khuli loach

I bought a khuli loach and three days later it has since died. When I brought it home from the pet store, it was swimming and eating fine. When it died, it was lying on its side and the mouth was puffy and red (like it was choking on something). Over half of the underbody was a purplish color. It was having a hard time breathing. Could this be because of stress or a parasitic disease?
