Video of Birdy when he's smaller, ard 6-7in-ish. They tend to adopt a darker colour when the surrounding/substrate are darker.. Notice he still have the "Puppy Dog Eyes" :D
They are much more active when they are younger..




This is him when he's ard 12in. Different tank, different surrounding, quite different body markings but pretty much the same attitude!

Could be a sign of stress.

Not all are the same. The brown part u mentioned will eventually turn to a bright yellow.
