My guess is that you have a Junvenile Angel and he is changing to his adult coloring.

what are your water params?

how old is this fish? did you QT it? was it purchased in this condition? is it eating?

My tank params are all good QT and DT. I quarantined it fir 10 days with some extreme garlic. It was purchased in good condition. And I have the fish for about 15 days

When going from juvi too adult the colors kinda blend in together, giving it a mottled look, like its washed out. Blending all the colors together, they tend to look, "weird". White washes in also.

10 days in a QT isnt effective as disease sometimes wont show for about 10 days. if it is eating healthy thats a good sign. lets hope its just changing to its adult phase as reefing said.
