V. Maassi Past Away or Killed! *PIC*

I found this tonight! V. Maassi Dead! The water parameters are all perfect/fine. However i did notice that since I've kept these loaches there was alway two that seemed to challenge each other. At first i thought it was a pair, then i was thinking two males or females not getting along. Well now it seems there's something! The only other occupants are Rasboras and Pepper loaches. Anyways! Here's a picture. Do you think it's a disease? Or a fighting wound? I know it's a hard question regarding these species as they are rare to the aquarium trade. Tell me what you think when you see the picture. Many thanks.

Graeme.
