I'm kind of worried here....

My betta fish Franky seems to be dramatically losing color on his belly. It doesn't look like any fins are being effected at all. He's a blue and purple veiltail, and his abdomen allmost seems white if you look at it long enough.

ALSO- he's in a ten gallon. how often should i do water changes and what percentage of the water?

Thanks guys!
