Colouration can be related to several factors. Water parameters, light, the environment (substrate colour, places to hide, etc). And other fish of the same species and other species. Food can also affect colour, though less now with the good nutritional foods generally available. And of course spawning will affect colouration, as will water changes.

You don't mention the tank size, but adding another ram might be more trouble than help. Depending upon the sex of the current ram, and that of the added ram(s).

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
