colour change in pangios?

Is it usual for there to be a colour change and variation in the black kuhlis? Mine seem to be changing colour. Some have a distinctly darker ventral line and they all have a lighter belly - one has developed a bright banana yellow underside, whihc none of the others have. Is it a seasonal thing? There is a photo (link below), which isn't at all good - the only place the kuhlis sit still is in an obscure corner of the tank where I have to hold out the camera at arms length and guess. The colour is if anything a brighter and more distinct yellow than this shows.
