Sorry for your losses :(
The red colour is nothing to worry about imo, perfectly normal all of mine show this & especially when you catch them.
Whats your tanks params, just so others can see any problems & help you out :dunno:

water parameters are perfect. If I had to complain about the tank it would be about the snail population. Fyi tho the pic didn't show it well one of the zebras was much darker than the other 2

40 breeder, 2 large sponge filters, emp 400 hob, powerhead near substrate for added flow. nothing new added to tank, driftwood with java fern on it, several caves, water changes once a week from 55 drum that I use to treat and age my water for 2 days prior to use. Been keeping fish for 45 yrs so know the basics just never kept zebras before. have had them for probably 4/5 mths now , but stumped
