Will its coloration come back and what type of fish is this

I have an Oscar and it's missing some of it's coloration on the top of it's body. It is 1.5 inches big. Will it come back by itself, do I have to do something, will it come back at all. Please help.
Also what type if fish is the other I was told that it's a Jack Dempsey / Texas cichlid hybrid. But I'm not sure .



Thanks

Any type of cichlid will display different colors/patterns depending on a variety of factors. Mood, lighting, color of the substrate are just a few. Frozen bloodworms and spirulina-based flakes are good foods for enhancing color, and NLS pellets are an excellent staple diet that also brings out colors well.
