Odd loach trait?

I bought another peppered loach from my LFS a couple of weeks ago and there's something odd about his coloration...Most of the time he's got the usual peppered coloration but at times a pinkish-red stripe will show up from the middle of his eyes to the tip of his nose. He appears to be healthy and eats well. The tank temperature is 76 degrees F and he lives with tetras and corys so I'm not quite sure what the problem is. Anyone have any ideas?
