Faded Clown Loach

The colors of one of my three Clown Loaches seem to have faded in the past couple of days. These are fairly new fish (a week) and a fairly new tank (5 weeks) but I monitor the water closely ... pH, Ammonia, Nitrates, hardness etc. and it's fine. The fish are eating well, behaving normally, and share a well planted 55 gallon tank with just 3 Zebra Danios and two White Clouds, so they shouldn't be stressed. Plenty of caves and hiding spots too. I understand this sort of temporary change in color/vibrancy is not uncommon in loaches and some other varieties. But what causes it? Is it anything to be concerned about?
