yo yo loach behavior

Does anyone know anything about yo yo loach breeding or behaviors in general. Yesterday two of my loaches turned completely white and swam very close together. They didn't seem to be nipping at eachother or anything. I don't know if they were fighting, mating, or establishing dominance. I couldn't find my camera in time I wish I could have gotten a picture.

Also, do the markings on loaches, ie their intensity, indicate their moods or health. Some of mine will vary the darkness of their "Yo" markings. I'm not sure why. I have never seen them get totally white like i did yesterday though.
