Exclamation what causes the black stripe in the silver angel's eyes to disappear

I'm new to fish- like, very new. I know nothing at ALL about fish. But, I do have one question- I have an angelfish, and I've noticed that sometimes the black stripes through his eyes are not there- why is this?

My angel will sometimes turn off his stripes depending on his mood, sleeping, tank lights are off, etc.

Oops. I just noticed this was in the saltwater section. Is your angelfish fresh or salt? I have freshwater tanks.
