Clown loach spot

I've seen a few posts about tiny black dots appearing on their loaches, and a charcoal color down their backs. However, one of my loaches has a pretty large (too big for parasite) spot on his belly that I noticed about two weeks ago. I'm sure it was never there before. It also seems to change color as his stripes do, so it really looks like part of his natural pattern. He's one of my larger loaches, at about 6 inches, so I've had him for a while. He's otherwise healthy, eating fine and everything. I was just wondering if anyone else ever saw a clown loach change patterns like this...
