lost color?

My King betta smog has been in his new home for a few days now. its 2.5 gallons filtered and heated. I came into my room tonight and his normally blue body is almost brown. He's lost all the color :/ i'm kind of worried about him but i don't think its an emergency. Should I try a partial water change to see if that helps? Or what?
I haven't been overfeeding and he eats all I give him.
I was wondering what could be the problem?
Thanks in advance!

Thats not good. Consider putting this in the disease section, please fill out the check list sticky at the top.
Pics would be good there, too.

You dont have salt in there, right? Or more than 3 tsp/gallon (which is really high) of aquarium salt?
The temp should be 76-82.

Do a full water change, add dechlorinator, and acclimate properly by bobbing the fish in its cup, adding new water in small amounts every 5 minutes for at least 10.
