Look at what I found...

I went to the LFS today. I was in the market for a new female swordtail to replace the marigold that died. They had Koi there much to my surprise, but they were $6 apiece, they were about a half inch so far and I thought my already 2 inch swordtails would pick on a little one, also there was a dead Koi and a dead Red Wag platy in the tank so I decided against it. Walked a few tanks down and look at the beauty I found waiting for me there. For those who are curious this is a female Pineapple Swortail, and I believe she is with fry (so did the person at the lfs). She is actually a little bigger than my other two, but not by much, so she fits perfectly.

She lost her stripe, I'm guessing thats stress from the move and it will come back. I guess its not uncommon for fish to lose color right?

She is pretty. A fish will lose color under stress. She will color right back up once she is comfortable.
