"I have four Yoyo loaches I've had for 6 years. My largest is at least 5 1/2" long and the dominant Yoyo of the tank. They change colors during feed time, when another loach enters their 'territory', or when quarreling over something. Usually this color change is a slightly iridescent/pearlescent bluish color on top of their normal coloration; however, I've seen one or two of mine almost loose their colors when they lose a fight. They turn a beautiful copper color to express dominance, and become so dark you can barely see the stripes when fighting. Just before they change colors, their cheeks turn a metallic silvery blue color and soon after they rapidly shift colors. FYI- for the new loach owners, most loaches take naps! If you see your loaches start to sway and sort of rest on their sides a bit (and it hasn't been acting weird otherwise), its a good thing! It means it feels safe outside of its hiding place & is taking a nap :). Sometimes they take these in huge groups, huddled up next to each other. Also, they can get quite rough when fighting over food or their territories, but I've yet to see one of mine hurt another one. I love these fish, they each have their own unique personalities and will become the stars of your tank. I highly recommend getting more than one though. They seem happier that way :)."
