OK, sounds like you have a Tiger Endlers / Bunnble Bee Endlers. These are not true Endlers they are Endler Guppy cross bred. As for the color fading that is somewhat normal. Due to the genetics, these fish are suseptiible to stress related color fading. Give it a few more days and it should be fine.
You did not say what else is in your tank, but be warned that your little half breed can breed with guppys and mess up the color line. Some people care, others don't. As for me I care. Also be aware most of the hybred Endler / Guppys lose the Endlers trait of not eating their young.
Endlers are cool little fih to work with. I have three different color lines and they throw amazing colors. Nothing can beat a smaller tank stocked full of male Endlers. If you ever want to work with Endlers just drop me a line and I'll get you set up. You can p.m. me if interested.
