Question First 100% Water change and betta color change

Hello

I did a 100% water change of my first betta on the 5th day.

As soon as i put him in the new water, his color changed from dark red to an eerie light yellow, orange mix. It was almost immediately, i got worried.

But the color has returned back to normal red now.

Is this a normal behavior, why does a betta change color ?

it happened because you didn't acclimate him to the new water and new water temperature was different than his water.
