Question Loss of color?

My beautiful boy Romeo has been losing color. He is not showing any signs of sickness. I believe it is from me keeping the hood light on so long, the light could have stressed him out due to him not being used to the light on all day. Thoughts? I can provide a picture of before, and after if needed. :)

Thanks,
~maddy

How many hours do you keep it on in a day?

Maybe about half the day? I turn it off short periods in between.

Hmm...I keep my light on for about 9-10 hrs a day and my boy seems fine. Are there a lot of places/covering for him to hide?

And pictures would be helpful :)

He has some big silk plants to hide under. I'll take a few pictures.

The flowers are nice but a mug or a cave would be better, sometimes my betta wants to take a nap in the daytime when the light is out and he just goes and hides in his cave for an hour or so for some rest.
