Barbarian in my Tank?

I added two zipper loaches to my 75 Gal two days ago. This morning I check the tank and see that one of the zippers has lost his barbs around his mouth leaving a whitish scar tissue. What could cause this?

6 clowns
1 Yo-Yo
1 Pleco
2 Tetras
1 Zebra
1 Guppy
2 Zippers

I also have two Emperor filters.. I noticed that the Yo-Yo took an interest to the zippers right away. Besides that I can't think of what may have caused this.
