Amazing Clownfish Survival

About 6 months ago I bought 2 False Percula Clownfish for my tank. One of them seems to like to jump into my overflow every once and awhile. Well a month ago I noticed I was mising a clown and thought I saw him in the overflow again. When I went to get him out he was no where to be found. I searched the entire tank, sump and overflow but could not find him. I assumed he was lost forever. Yesterday when I was feeding the tank I saw him in the overflow, still alive. Don't ask how I managed to miss him for a whole month when I spend at least 1 hour everyday feeding and watching the tank. Anyhow, he is now backiin the main part of the tank.

Now the question. He has lost a fair bit of the black color from the ends of all his fins and they have actually gone transparent. I am assumung that this is from lack of food and that as he gets his strength back up it will return. Am I right?
