ok.... here goes......

My loaches are in a 35 gal tank, the water temp is constant at 75 degrees F, I checked the ph this morning, it is about 6.7, and no ammonia showed up with the test. I dont have a test for nitrates. I use a three part filter, AquaClear 200 and change out the elements alternately about every two weeks. I change between 5 and 10 gal of the water when I do the filter and use Aqua Plus water conditioner, and Cycle, as per the instructions.

The spots dont really appear to be any type of shedding, they just look like they are pale spots on this one fish. No real abnormal signs of distress, I don't know what is up.
