My clown fish are turning Black?!?!?!!!

Hello, Can any one tell me why my percula clowns are turning black??? I have checked the water conditiond and everything is perfect. No lighting change or food change. No new fish or anything. It has been 3 days since they started turning. I dont know what to do, does anyone have any idea as to whats going on??
Thanks a million for your time and advice,,
Chele

I have heard that they get darker when there is no anenome present and when they are getting ready to spawn. But that's just what some guy at a pet shop told me.

Whatever the cause it is common in many species of clownfish and is nothing to worry about
