Khuli Loach - normal?

I have , what I believe, is a Khuli Loach which shares a small aquarium with a couple of goldfish. I live in the tropics, so water temperature is pretty stable. This shy little critter keeps himself buried in the gravel most of the time, appearing maybe once a fortnight ( during daylight hours anyway)
Recently, I noticed him very active early morning ( still dark) as I turned the light on ...are they nocturnal?
Also his bold black and reddish stipes have faded to dark and light pink...is this normal?
Thanks in advance
