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

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.
