Do Zebra Loaches Change Color??

I turn on the light for 8 hours everyday when I get home from work. Today when I turned on the light 1 of my Zebra Loaches was being very Aggressive with the other Zebra Loach in the tank and it looked very dis-colored like grayish fungus looking. By the time I got the quarantine container and net to fish him out to have a better look he was back to normal and not fighting. It was the freakiest thing!
Any Ideas?
Thanks

Perfectly normal, typical loach behavior. When my clowns tussle they go from being bright orange & black, to dull orange and gray. When my yoyos tussle they turn so pale you almost can't make out their markings.
When I first got my group of yoyos I didn't know this and did exactly what you did. I was convinced that the whitish looking loach was sick and needed to be removed from the tank. I tried chasing her around with a net, to no avail. I decided to give her a break and come back to it later. While on the computer and doing research I find out that it's healthy loach behaivor. Then, of course, I felt bad for torturing her for nearly 30 minutes trying to catch her.
How many zebras do you have?
