    what are his night time temps? If he is getting too cold at night it might make him turn black. A good night time temp shouldnt drop below 65f or 62f (although warmer is better). If you find it is too low you might want to try warming up him enclosure or the whole room at night.
    Is there anything in the room that night stress him out at night?Also, how old is your dragon? Young ones tend to stay a bit darker.

    Thats my two cents, anyone else?
