Just because you've had the snake for 6 months doesn't mean it can't now be stressed. Stress is not caused simply by a new environment, but by environmental conditions. Things like not getting enough food, getting too much, being handled too often, or not being handled for a while and then being handle, temperature issues, hide issues, water issues, etc. can all have an impact on whether or not a snake is stressed.

As for the actual changing of the colours... I don't know, sorry.

Make sure that your keeping the snake in top conditions first and see if that improves things at all.

I am keeping my snake in top conditions but it might be the food thing because once in a while he does go off feed for a week or two then he will eat for a month then stop but he does not lose weight from doing it. clean water everyday, handle her when every other day and i stop when she goes off feed.

Going off feed for a month won't hurt the snake if it's weight is good to begin with. As for handling, are you handling it after it's been fed? You should always leave it be for at LEAST two days after feeding so it can digest.

I really don't know what the problem is though, sorry... Maybe it would be best to go to a reptile forum like The Canopy and ask there.
