If you're feeding him any type of colour enhancing food, that could be part of it. My VT, Punkin, when I first got him he looked like this the first picture, then changed to how he is now in the 2nd picture. That's because I have always fed him colour enhancing food, which most Betta food actually is.

It's even colour-enhanced his bubblenest.

Really, conditions and good nutrition (regardless of whether it says colour=enhacing or not) will cause a betta to brighten up, regardless of whether they are marbles. It's just more noticeable in a marble. :)

That's awesome. And it seems to be a healthy vivid yellow which isn't all that common so that's pretty cool too. I love how bettas seemingly change color as they mature. My Gyarados used to be a very plain red with only a tiny smidge of blue. Now he's red, blue, and black.

From this:

To this:

And currently now this:

I love the yellow on your little guy. I usually see the opposite happen--added color, not turn into one almost solid color.
