Dojo Loach barbel

Hi all. I am new to this site and I hope somebody can help me. I am worried sick about my new dojo loach that I have only one week. It appears that he is losing his barbel (I like to think of them as whiskers) on the one side of his mouth. I am really worried about him...could this be some type of mouth fungus? There is no other signs of injury or white spots. The parameters in my tank are all perfect. I have four cory cats in there as well as another dojo loach and all of them are just fine. Any suggestions you can give me would be greatly appreciated. By the way, the only other fish in there are 5 dwarf gouramis and the catfish as mentioned above.
Thanks
Theresa
