I removed the pic of your g/f for you.

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

Aquarium
I wouldn't worry about it. Fish often change their colors slightly depending on mood, breeding readiness, etc (especially if it's first thing in the morning before lights come on). The red on my male pearl gouramis throat often varies in intensity. My angelfish turns her stripes on and off. My female firemouth had gorgeous colors just before she laid eggs. So as long as the fish fish is eating and acting fine I wouldn't stress about it.

150 Gallon - Mostly American Cichlids
135 Gallon - Angelfish Community
75 Gallon - Odd couple (Polleni/Angelfish)
55 Gallon - African tank
20 Gallon Long - QT
10 Gallon - Empty
