Golden Dojo Loach Turning Red!

    Hi All! Please let me know if you've encountered anything like this before. I have 2 golden dojo loaches with a smattering of minnows and tetras in a 55 gallon lightly planted tank. They are both at least a year old and about 6 inches long. Today, one of them is visibly red around the tail and top fin, and has a red spot on one barbel. I am worried that it may have tried to jump (as these loaches do) and injured itself on the lid, or that it may have some kind of infection. The other fish in the tank (including the other loach) are healthy and colored as usual. I've attached some pictures. Thank you for sharing your experience! View attachment image.jpeg
