So I've had Gideon for about three months now and I'm starting to worry because the coloring around his gills are fading. The odd thing is, his eating habits and activities are normal. I attached a photo to help with the diagnostic. He is my first betta and I want to make sure he is ok, he is currently living in a 3 gal. Tank since I'm not aloud bigger in my apartment.
