What do you mean by losing their slime coat? Are there visible bare patches on their exterior and no scale damage, or are there marks in the scales as well?

What kind of decorations do you have in the tank? Further details on your water parameters are always helpful.

Were the loaches in the same tank? If so there's a good chance that there's something seriously wrong with your water, as loaches with no scales will often be the first to succumb to any water issues.

I'd be looking to test your water hardness, and making sure any new decoration additions to the tank are removed asap.

I don't have one at this stage, but it's a test kit that would be included in the larger kits you can buy.

I think it's to test kH, can't confirm. Read on here a while back about someone having fungal growth because their water was too soft. One of the more experienced keepers will be able to help you out hopefully.
