Yoyo loach markings?

I have had my 6 yoyo loaches for a little over a year now. They range in sizes betwen 3-4 inches. They were all purchased when they were an inch long and all had the same "yoyo" markings. One year later, I have yoyo loaches that are completely different. Some of the loach's markings are modified Y O Y O and some have intricate lace patterns. There are also colour differences. Some are brownish in colour and some are silver with powder blue in some of the "O" and modified "Y". Are there different types or subspecies of almorhaes or are these just colour phases? GGG
