Cool New Gauges Installed

So i had some gauges laying around from my other car that i wasnt using anymore so i decided to install them in the truck!! They are made by glowshift and i bought them off ebay. When the truck is OFF, the lenses are tinted and you cant see through them. When the truck is ON, the light in there turns on and looks like this....

Do those one's change color? I like the white face version of those that can change color. Are pretty reliable no issues? I want to get an electric oil pressure and want to be able to match my white face gauges with the green lighting.
