I have a Clown Loach question.....

I completely changed out one of my 29 gallon tanks in early December, 
including a new tank, substrate, plants, etc. Because of a disaster (don't ask) I 
also restocked the tank, with 3 small Cory Cats, 5 Yucatan Mollies, and 3 Clown 
Loaches (I had snails come in on my new plants and I don't like them in my 
tanks). To save money I got them from the local Meijers (A Midwestern chain maybe 
one notch above Walmart).

Anyway-I just absolutely could not keep the Clown Loaches alive. I had 2 die 
almost immediately, the store replaced them, when I came back from being away 
a few days at Christmas, all 3 were dead, after having them replaced again and 
the new ones lasting for not quite a week I finally gave up.

The other fish are all alive and doing great. Is there some mysterious "Clown 
Loach disease" or something? I did have the tank closer to 70 than 80 but not 
below 70. I don't think I need them anymore as I haven't seen any snails but 
I wonder what happened?
