~ two of my four remaining yoyo loaches, the stripes (YOYO) have been fading away to were i can hardly see it or to a very light grey, they are still eating fine though, so i wasn't worried about it at first, but i just lost the first two that were showing the same signs, and now i am worried about the last four
~ammonia 0, nitrites0, nitratesjust about 25, temp 79, pH 7.3 (should i do another water changed tonight?)
~90 gallons, been set up for about five months, just finished cycling about three months ago
~i have one common pl*co about 13 or 14 inches long, seven neon tetras,four yoyo loaches, one ruby shark (about 4 inches) and three dwarf gouramis
~last water change was about a week ago, i usually do it every sunday, vacumming gravel each time, and about thirty-fifty percent each time
~ pleco had for ten years and one month (my fave fish, such a personality) loaches about one and a half months, ruby shark for 6 months (was in my forty gallon)and gouramis about a week now
~newest thing was my gouramis
~no change in diet, they get sliced cucumber or zuchinni about one a week, algae waffers,and tetra min flakes.
okay, now for the question, is it normal for yoyo loaches to lose their color like this, or is it maybe a sign to an underlying problem, all suggestions will be greatly appriciated.
