Clown fish turning black

My orange clown fish is starting to darken in color... It is ratting and swimming fine. Does this happen?

Is it a "true" or "false" clown?

I would guess false.. Well it is very much a clown fish I'd say he was a tank raised clown.. True vs false is like coding in binary 1 being yes 0 being not clown fish.

How old is the lil bugger? And IMO it looks like it may be a true percula clown. They get a thicker and darker black stripe.

It looks healthy as far as I can see. Any parameter issues? Eating ok?
