    from experience i can say some bettas change colors with time due to some genetics. when you buy them you may see them a certain color, but later they might have three, or two different colors from when you bought it.

    I agree with what korwea said. Although if they look like they're rotting/falling off, it could most likely be fin rot.
    Normally the edges of fins get discolored to a greyish color. But I don't know; I'd keep an eye on her just in case.

    Pics would make this easier. As stated above, Betta sometimes change colour. Example, we got a red body, blue finned crowntail male. His colours changed to blue body, red fins and he stayed that way til he died. Another drab male Plakat Betta we got some time ago as a freebie has turned into one of the most beautiful Betta we've ever had and we've had a bunch and still do.

    You mentioned that you've got a new filter, sometimes Betta will get 'stuck' to the filter intake. They all do this, they'll just allow themselves to be 'stuck' there. Betta laziness or Betta craziness? Who knows. But what'll happen is the fins will get a white/grey-white colouration to the fins that were against the intake. Sometimes it'll even show as a pattern of the intake strainer.
