I'm thinking skinny disease is like dropsy in terms that there's no one cause.
If you've exhausted the parasite route, try the bacterial route.

I am highly likely completely wrong but the fact that lots of small ones but no adults were found would indicate that the fish have been put there by someone Just a thought, from observations though fishing, young fish hang out together in schools with no adult around. And they seem to be from the ...

don't over feed any fish, just the standard what they can eat in a minute or two, once or twice a day.. Some feed a lot more often but in smaller quantities.

people here like a fat loach. Hope you have tank space for all those clowns :)

malachite green is pretty nasty stuff. I wouldn't use it.

If you have a UV sterilizer, use it in addition to bringing up the temperature.. No need for salt or meds.

Thanks for the feedback and it's exactly why I am posting here. But could you tell me what is different about the habitats? Or do you mean they aren't found together in nature? both I guess... I'm sure you already know from your research, loaches are usually in river/stream sand habitat with neutra...

the loaches will adjust to 78F.. Or lower your temp to 74F.. Most plants like that temp.

Loaches will appreciate hiding places like caves & pvc pipes and most do fine with plants.. The small botias will do fine.
