Clown loaches

Hi, am new to the world of loaches.. 2 questions if any one can help me

1) one of the loaches (I have 3) seems to be changing colour... his black stripes are going grey, I noticed when I bought them in the shop the stripes were all greyish/black ... once at home they all turned dark black, now one of them is going grey again .... ??? (Btw, have only had them for a week... they're in a tank with a few established goldfish and other friendlies)

2) one of the other two is displaying really wierd behaviour, he (could be she I guess!) sort of floats about twisting every now and again (rather like a sick fish!!), stands on his tail in the corner of the tank for a bit, yet 95% of the time seems completely normal, eating, swimming, playing with other loaches...etc! any hints ?

Any info much appreciated... thanks.
