She doesn't seem stressed. There isn't anything new in the tank, except a new filter. Maybe I'm just freaking out for no reason?

Is the filter blowing her around at all? Her loss of colour may be a reaction to that. Does she have some hiding places?

I'd maybe try raising the temperature a couple of degrees. :)

It does a little, and she's got a big cave and two plants. Oh! I just remembered that she used to have three plants in her tank, but I took one out and gave it to my new fish. Dunno if that could cause anything?

It could be, but I'd say it's more likely to be the filter. Have you tried baffling it? :)

Uh, I dont know what that is. But I do have a sponge on the bottom part of it so she doesn't get stuck to it

There is a thread on here about baffling. You use a clean water bottle cut to size and fit over the part of the filter that throws the water back into the tank. This way the pressure is dispersed to the sides and has much less punch. You can use the search tool at the top and put in baffle or baffling and you should find a thread that explains it.

Just to add some betta's do not like any kind of flow, what size tank is it. If it's under five gallons you don't really need a filter.
