Happiness of loaches.

I was wondering if you could tell if a loach was happy by looking at their eyes. I noticed something different about my clown loach's eyes after they got velvet. I couldn't figure out what it was for a long time, but then I noticed: It was that the edge around their eyes was light colored instead of black like their stripes. This is the only time they have done this, so could this be a way to tell if clown loaches are happy or not?
