It could be an injury, parasite, or just a change of color. Check your water chemistry and any areas in the tank where your fish may have injured itself. Is the tank large enough for all three fish?

The link below shows a list of diseases and how to treat. If it's not getting any worse and he's eating, it may take care of itself.

Here is a link that might be useful: Fish care
