why has my clown fish gotten so dark?

Any idea why my male clown has darkened up so much? The female I bought with him has remained the way she's been from the start. He looked that way when I got him as well. Are they the same kind of clownfish?

You can see the female in the background

Do you think he is just a very young black and white clown and will continue to change? I've yet to see any others that look like him.

He looks like he's changing to me. The body changes first, face changes last. My b/w still has a hint of orange at his lips.
