Default Maswa with white band?

Three Duboisi in the picture below are F1 siblings from same WC parent but the two with white band was sent and kept in my friends tank for 4 months when they were about 2" size and came back to mine 1 months ago. He has different tank environment including food, water change pattern, etc. They're all ~3.5 inches and 15 months old now. Please notice the the color difference of band. If the one in yellow is normal, what happens to the ones in white? Will the white color change to yellow?

I see some yellow in the band, could be a pecking order thing since they are new additions to the tank maybe they are showing submissive colors?

If they are the same age it could be from either the environment and diet or just simple variation as with any tropheus. But being that the two of them were in a different environment than the rest, the commonality is just that. The environment.

Give them time to be on a better diet and in better water. They hopefully will eventually bloom. The stripes seem to have a decent foundation. They just need time. What were you feeding yours and what was he feeding them?
