Is this a normal color for a Tiger Oscar ?

I just bought 3 Tiger Oscars and 2 are normal black, was wondering why this one is so light gray ? i tried to find others online like this and no luck

Is this normal or should i be worried ?

How long have you had the fish? Could be just stress coloration. If your water is fine then it should go away once he becomes comfortable in his surrounding.

"responsible fish keeper?... Didn't know there was any other kind"

I am not retarded I just can't spell

If he is eating and not hiding then yea maybe that is his coloration. I have seen a few like that before. Maybe he is a young lutino oscar?

They are all just color morphs. Lutino is not a tiger it is a different morph all together.
