Clownfish changing colors?
 
Hi, I have 2 clownfish as part of my salt aquarium. They are (for lack of a better term because I can't remember the proper name) the nemo type, orange with 3 stripes. Recently I noticed that the last stripe on one of them has changed from it's brilliant white to a brown-grey color. I checked all the levels in my tank and everything's normal. The other clown is fine and we haven't had any sickness outbreaks. Does anyone know what's causing this?

It could be the beginning of a color change. Eventually one of your clownfish shoudl take on the dominant female role and become a deep black color.

+1 and it's called a False Percula or Ocellarus clown fish. undefeated

Thank you both for your help! I hope that's all it is!
