When do leopard gecko patterns and color stop changing? or do they always change but slow down once they get to a certain age.

they change a lot until they reach adulthood, they'll always change but once they're fully grown it won't be as obvious, like they may get a shade lighter or a spot may gradually disappear over a long period of time, wheras babies will lose a spot within a month.
