My fish has some discoloration on the top of his body. When I first got him there was color. What causes this and is it bad?

I'm pretty new to the betta scene--more specifically the proper care of them--but it was always my understanding that when they start to loose color it's because they're dying or uber stressed.

its stroing possibility that it is bad. We need more info before we can tell we why the discoloration... such as the temp, how old is he? water parameters; ammonia levels, ph, is it cycled?

Color discoloration can be due to stress from too much movement going on and its just not happy. Or from poor diet. or the the quality of water is just no good. 8)
