Baby Red Oscar Color

I have 2 baby red Oscars that I puchsed about 5 days ago. They seem to not be colored very well. The area that was supposed to be red looks pale and discolored. Will they get more colorful as they grow or is that just how theyll look? Is there anything I can do to give them better colors?

At least 50% WC's every week. Feed the Oscars a varied diet, Frozen blood worms and brine shrimp as well as live crickets and grasshoppers. There are also color enhancing flake foods.
That should put your Oscars in the best physical condition possible, maximizing their colors.
