Clown loach color change

I just got 2 baby clown loaches, each under and inch in length to keep my other one company. He is about 2 inches in length. Ive seen him gray out before, but when he met the two new little guys his black stripes darkened, especially the edges. It looks like the stripes are outlined in thin ink black stripes. His yellow color has stayed the same. I thought he might gray out, but I wasnt expecting him to darken. Is he showing off? Im assuming he is the alpha of the tank now.
