YoYo losing its stripes??

About three weeks ago I purchased two YoYo loaches for my community tank (guppies, swordtails, cory. pandas, ottos, flame tetras) ph7 - 7.5, hardness +/- 10dGH, 25C, well planted. One has always had paler stripes than the other (dominance, sex, whatever???) but yesterday its stripes faded almost completely away and it wasn't until s/he reappeared this morning that I was able to verify that they had "reappeared". Has anyone seen this before in Botia, Yoyos? If so, what might have caused it? I tested the water immediately and it was fine and nothing has been added to the tank recently. Thanks a lot for any information you can give me.
