Sailfin gibbiceps pleco/colour?!

Nibs

Hi guys hope your all doing fine today just a quick one. What are your opinions on the colours of this sailfin should I be worried or is this a normal to have dull patches got him today and didn't pay enough attention at the LFS. Thanks in advance.

I believe this is the stress pattern exhibited by this species.

Thank you so much I had no idea about plecos losing color when stressed. I appreciate the quick response. Do u think stress guard will help I know my take is cycled and and nitrogens are perfect so could of been the trip and new environment I hope.

Give about a week or two and normally these marks will be gone, looks healthy also pleco need hiding space so if it doesn't feel safe or able to hide this markings may remain longer
