My Otocinclus!!

Ok, I have 2 Otos. I've had them for about...erm...since last July/August. They've been shy after going from the 10gl to the 30gl. But today the bigger one (I'm convinced he's a different oto specie) was latched onto the glass and a very pale color. It was almost an albino-goldish color.

I'm very concerned. The last time he did that was when he and his friend were in a bag that was caught in the filter's current.....over and over....(like a ferris wheel...they got dizzy..).

First off, this behavior isn't right for him. He hardly attaches to the glass, only to the plants. He only attaches to the glass when he's sleeping. And the color is still not right..

Do you think he's on his last fins? </
