Fish gets pale and has stripes after water changes.

My CT Curly is normaly turquiose, red and green (like a rooster) however when I change his water he turns brown and lose most of his color and shows dark stripes. He does eventually color up again. Last night I changed the water Tonight he still has not colored up completely His body near his head is still brown and I can still see stripes although a bit faded. He was in a gallon critter carries I've upped him to a 2 gallon sterilite container until a large tank is cycled. Should I be concerned? I think he was happy in the gallon tank he's pretty slow sedentary fish even though he now has more. He is very nervous and jumpy in the larger container. If I put him back in the gallon container it will mean more water changes.

How do you do your water changes? (What's the procedure you do, and how do you acclimate him to the new water?) If you tell us that, people may be able to offer suggestions to may make it less stressful for him....
