I agree if hes acting all big and bad and getting black on his face and black ventral fins hes the dominant male.

JDs can be fairly aggressive so your lab could have gotten an injury during a fight. If the mouth has tufts of gray it could be mouth fungus. If not I don't know what it could be.

Now my is not sick because jd is the boss in the tank. After som duel fight yello lab goes to his hiding place and his color turns back to yello. It's the duel fight that make him change of color. It is possible when he gets sick he will have that color too.

You aggression issues will probably continue in that small of tank if yyour planning on that as their permanent home. You may already know but they will nneed a bigger tank.
