Smile My Guppy is changing color!

A few months ago I got 2 guppies, one male and one female. They were the same metallic color except the male was a bit brighter than the female, which is normal for guppies. I brought them home and put them in a tank. Now the male is turning from the metal color to a really pretty blue and yellow! By no means am I complaining, but why is the guppy changing color?

Maybe he is maturing. Guppies develope their full color more as they mature, in my experience.

"He situates himself in relation to time. He takes his place in it. He admits that he stands at a certain point on a curve that he acknowledges having to travel to its end. He belongs to time, and by the horror that seizes him, he recognizes his worst enemy. Tomorrow, he was longing for tomorrow, whereas everything in him ought to reject it."

Tonight while I was feeding them I noticed the female's tail was the same pretty yellow as the males. The female should be duller than the male right?

They usually have shorter tails and less color.
