Misbar maroon clown question

Hey everyone. Quick question (hopefully):

I purchased a maroon clown at my lfs a couple weeks ago. He's really neat and only about an 1 1/2 inches. I was curious if you guys think his markings will remain how they are or if the bars will fill in? Thanks in advance!

From what I've read the fish keep the coloration as it's a genetic defect so to speak.

the bar most likely wont grow in, hence the name "misbar".
