Yellow Watchman Goby Pale

I recently bought a large full grown yellow watchman goby that is quite pale. It is eating very well and otherwise healthy. It was pale at the store as well. Is this just how they look full grown? Or was it stressed at the store and will eventually "color-up"? Thanks for any help.

This guy is about 5" long, I paid $25. I feel like I got a good deal even if this is all the color he will display. Thanks for pointing that out.
