Gill covers going white at night?

It's been happening for as long as I can remember with Roscoe, but I'd like to see if anyone has any idea why.

After the tank lights go out, the outer millimeter of Roscoe's gill covers turn very white/silver, but soon after the lights go back on they change back..

It's not a temperature difference, I've got a Marineland Stealth Pro in there holding a steady 81, so I don't know what it is.

Actually, it's pretty much what's happening in my avatar. Though usually brighter than that, and in the morning goes right back to brown.

I have a similar issue with my fish, the picture for your avatar looks like what my fish may have, but instead of white it is orange/gold.

Did you find out why your fish's gill covers change color?

If the fish is acting fine otherwise and water quality is maintained from regular water changes- then I would not worry and look at it as normal color changes from day and night or lights on lights off....to blend into the surrounding in a sense....
