new fish owner

About 1 week ago I bought 3 clown loaches to keep the company of an African cichlid and an angelfish, who keep eachothers company fine, in a 40 gal tank.
The problem I am having is that the clown loaches will change color; from a whitish/grey color (very palish) to a dark brown almost muddy color. The water temp is fine (79 degrees) and the water testing comes out fine. I have a feeling that it pertains to their mood; however I am a brand new fish owner so I am no professional. Does any one have any advice for me?
