Question Bettas color

My bettas color has been faded for the past couple days. And he isn't that active as he used to be. Can somebody help me and tell me what may be wrong?

From looking at the other threads I'd suggest a 50% water change. >.>

But it's worth noting I'm new here as well.

I don't think a 50% change would hurt. Just be careful to acclimate him. Have you noticed any other symptoms, such as marks on his body and/or fins? What's his tank temp at? Do you clean his tank often enough?

How big is the tank, how much and how often are the water changes and when was the last one? what is the water temp, any additives used? How long have you had him?
Can you post a pic?

His tank is a 10g. I just did a 50% water change yesterday. His tank temp is kept between 79-80 degrees. I clean his tank about once a week. I have had him for almost 3 weeks now. He has no marks on his fin or body. He was fine for the first two weeks then this past week, his color started to become faded.
