Answer

try this changing the color as you wish:

Create this file in drawable folder

tab_indicator_color.xml:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <selector xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android">
    <!-- UNSELECTED TAB STATE -->
    <item android:state_selected="false" android:state_pressed="false">
        <layer-list xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android">
            <!-- Bottom indicator color for the UNSELECTED tab state -->
            <item android:top="-5dp" android:left="-5dp" android:right="-5dp">
                <shape android:shape="rectangle">
                    <stroke android:color="#65acee" android:width="2dp"/>
                </shape>
            </item>
        </layer-list>
    </item>


</selector>

and after set your .xml file in app:tabBackground like this:

 <android.support.design.widget.TabLayout
        android:id="@+id/tabs"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        app:tabMode="fixed"
        style="@style/MyCustomTabLayout"
        app:tabBackground="@drawable/tab_indicator_color" />
