Can young females change color as they get older?

My female Penelope is 4-6 month old she seems to be getting a darker brown, the dragonscaling is become more prominent. Is this pretty typical?I have had her a few months so this isn't a just home from the petstore change.

Mine have. :) My cambodians have gotten darker on their bodies, and one that has some purple in her fins has gotten more purple and darker.

Also, I've got a metallic teal that has definitely darkened, and a light blue who is becoming increasingly darker blue. :)

So either both of our fish are either weird, or it's normal. ;)

Yeah, most of mine get a bit more instense colored as they get older as well.
it's probably because you're feeding them a good diet and they are more mature so their bodies don't have to focus on growth and can focus on attracting a mate instead.
