Is there a reason why some of these guys are dark and some are pale?

Stress? Male and female? Age? There are many factors.

I don't like any fish that have a paler color than usual. They look best in schools and are a tight schooling fish. How many do you have?

Only 2 of them are. They been like that ever since I've had them, which is around a year and a bit. They looked the same when I got them (they were smaller) and then 3 got darker and 2 didn't. I assumed it was gender.

It's either gender or bad jeans. The pale one's parents could have had pale color too and passed on the jeans.
