Large female cherry barb losing colour?

elBez

Hello,

I currently have 6 cherries in a planted, fully-cycled 20 Gal tank. They were added to the tank in March of 2022. The largest female, who is quick, fat, and always launches herself at food, has faded over the past few weeks - she's more of a orange-brown, rather than a vibrant orange like the rest of the ladies. I can try and get a picture if this would help. "Personality" wise, she's the same as she's always been, curious, aggressive, and hungry.

I am wondering if this is simply age, or perhaps another factor? Appreciate everyone's time in advance.
