Black jack dempsey

I have a jack dempsey that is black/ dark grey and barely lights up, can anyone tell me why its black/dark grey, the guy just said it was like any other jack dempsey. I cant even see a band that runs through its body and my other jack dempsey is almost always lit up

i recently bought 2 JD's and when i got them they were yellow, now they are more blue/blackish with specs of diffrent colors running all over their bodies. when i feed them the get darker when they fight with other fish they lighten up to match the sand/rock in the tank. i was told they change due to thier moods/ enviroment. iv seen this in my covics also.
