Anthias losing color?

Anyone have any idea what could be wrong? We feed him 3 times a day and our water conditions are fine. Could it be that there is no male to compete with and no female to impress?

That could be it, but it also can be the lights. Every anthias I've researched supposedly lose their color when they are under bright lights, they prefer darker tanks.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Interesting, I may have to look into finding him a better cave so he can hang out under, thanks!
