Color can fade depending on night and day, I am suspecting pH, Ammonia, Nitrite levels. what is temp?
Basically the catfish likes to hide around one of my floating plastic plants at the top and he'll swim down a little bit in the corner where the pleco likes to hide. My pleco will suck up on the glass about mid lvl and if he gets anywhere close to my pleco he will dart up at him really fast and raise his dorsal fin.
As for water params I just got them tested a few days ago at my lfs and they told me everything was good. as I am awaiting a liquid test kit to come in to buy a new one. I do about 30% water exchanges every week and vacume with the water change. the tank is a 55g with 3 angels, a common pleco, 2 hifin black skirt tetra, and about 12 red tux platys. the temp stays at a good steady 78f and there are no live plants within the tank. my filter is a topfin 60 which I plan on changing out when I can get extra money. I also have a bubble wand if that matters. I have not treated for anything and all my other fish look pretty good healthy and have a healthy appetite. My catfish however does not. unless its secretly eating something at night that I don't know about. Oh and I use algae wafers and tropical flake food regularly and brine shrimp once a week.
