HELP! Losing his color...

My fish used to be dark blue and now it seems like his color is falling off, his body is turning light pinkish and what used to be blue is now dark red... He is acting completely fine and eating vigorously and seems very happy. Is he alright??
Here's some pictures... although the flash makes it look really terrible and much worse then it actually is..

Looks like you have a marble betta. :)

Marbles,change colors throughout their lives.

Pretty fish BTW.

Edit: Here's a nice article explaining marbles

Marbling maybe? If he's acting fine I think you got yourself a marble! Marbles are basicly fish that change color all the time.

Edit: beat2020 beat me to it :P
