Angry Lygodactylus conraui - colors faded

Hello,
I purchased a few Lygodactylus conraui recently. I picked them up this past week.

The adult male was brightly colored in the shipping container but since introduction into the tank his colors are all muted.

This is a newly setup tank and I am misting it heavily to make sure the humidity is high and stable. I have been feeding melanogaster and left some gecko food in there also.

Any ideas?
Thank you

It's just the stress of moving into a new tank; nothing too serious. Just make sure they have plenty of spaces to hide and don't disrupt them too much, and the colors should return in a week or so.

Also, a picture of the tank would be helpful.
