Your plant actually looks quite healthy.
They require a high light level, which you can achieve by positioning the plant within 3 feet of an unshaded south- or west-facing window. In cooler, cloudier climates and in homes with north- or east-facing windows, light levels should be supplemented with artificial grow-lights. A fluorescent lamp positioned 1 to 2 feet above the aloe vera plant during daylight hours, or roughly 16 hours per day, will provide adequate light for healthy growth even in dim interiors. Just watch out for signs of too much light, such as blanched leaves or stunted new growth.
