He only stays at the top of the tank. It's a little more deep so he doesn't go to the bottem very much, I haven't seen him and I home most of the day so I watch him.

It is a little hard to tell in the pictures, but this is him before:

Well, I don't really know. You can try decreasing the hours that the light is on, and like BettaPirate said, adding a cave in the tank for him so that he can have some darkness when he needs it.

But if he seems healthy and has a healthy appetite, and there aren't any odd growths on him, I wouldn't worry too much about it.

Thank you. His light was off nearly all day and he has gained some color. I'm going to only turn it on when I'm at home in my room.

That's good to hear. But I think he's ok with 6-8 hrs a day, it's like the amount of light he would get in a day if he's out in the wild. But maybe do that once his colors have all returned.
