Dojos and others

One of my Dojos(i have two) seems to be breathing hard. Hes hanging near the top of the tank or chilling on a plant but always seems to be breathing hard. The other one is fine. Wondering what this could be?

Also i pcked up a loach a store had listed as a tiger loach. It has the same body shape as a dojo but has two lower barbels and four upper. Its dorsal fin is longer and sleeker and its coloration is different. Its sorta tiger stripped on the top and directly through the center the strips end and there little black marks through the bottom which is just a plain beige color. Its head is different from a dojo also. Got it for 5 bucks and its very healthy. Already glommed on blackworms. Anyone know what it is. I looked through the species index but didnt see it.
