fading colors

I have two loaches in my 30g tank for about 1.5years. Lately their colors seem to fade away and turn to a pale yellow and greyish tint. Also their lateral side line is more and more visible. I feed them pellets, brine shrimps and some snails once in a while. They also get zucchini once a week.

Water parameters are ok, nitrites and ammonia are zero and nitrates around 20 (same as my tap water).

What could be the cause of this ? Should I tread them with something ? Any help is appreciated !
