They can change colour depending on mood, conditions and/or decor but I would not expect a black fish to turn pink unless there was something wrong.
Do you have a pic of the fish?
Did it change over time or quite quickly?
Has its behaviour changed at all? Is it still eating well?
Are the other fish ok?
What size is the tank? How long has it been set up? What are the readings for ammonia, nitrite and nitrate?
Sorry for all the questions but it will help work out what is happening.
