Molly changing colour?

Alright folks,

So I just got a new molly from the local pet shops community tank. When I bought it yesterday, it was black and orange and still mainly is. However, when I looked over at the tank this evening I noticed that the yellow colour has started to become more prominent and some of the black has changed to the orange colour.

I just wanted to post here to find out if this is normal. The molly shares a tank with a group of neon tetras.

Also, just while I'm here, is it normal for a molly to be reserved in a corner for a while then burst into sudden activity?

Thank you for taking the time to read this and answer if you can, I'll be very grateful for any responses.

PS, come to think of it the wee lad is only super reserved when I look at the tank up close so thinking about it now it's behaviour is probably due to the fact the wee lad has just come from the community tank where a lot of fish are coming and going with people tapping the glass all day etc etc, right?

I wouldn't worry unless the molly starts to pale in color. It'll take some adjustment, once it figures out you feed the tank it'll be bolder haha.
