one skinny loach

hey all it has been a very long time since I have visited this site.

I am having a problem with one of my clowns... over the last 2 weeks it has gotten pretty thin... none of the other 6 seem to have the problem...

I read the article that was suggested in an earlier in a post string that Erik started....

my question is... I only feed my clowns frozen blood worms... and have done so for the last few years... so is it possible for this one to have a parasite from frozen food? I would think freezing would kill the parasites that cause the wasting.

I should also report that I have had my clowns for about 7-8 years... they are 7+ inches long and they have been pretty healthy over all... I run my tank a around 80 degrees so I have not had a ick out break in years....

any other suggestions or do you guys think this sounds like the dreaded wasting disease.

If that is what it is... I no longer have a Q tank... so any suggestions on how to treat this one lone sickly one?

Thanks alot for any help!!
