I agree with Geoff.That's what it does as it start to change is 1st start to fade I grew 2 of them.Please post pics and feed him seaweed and romain lettuce,with all the other food your giving him.And ground your tank if you havn't yet!I saw a BIG difference when I did that!

I forget which one, but they have a sponge based food for angels, Ocean Nutrition maybe, also I really recommend using Selcon to fortify food, esp if you feed frozen brine shrimp, its like popcorn, filling but not much nutrition there.
Hopefully you have a large tank to house this fish as it grows, they get large.

Keep in mind that when they undergo the change its an esp difficult time for them
