Gasp! Marble bettas change colors this quickly??

I've only had Isis for a week or so and I've noticed his marbling has darkened on his tail and seems to be spreading throughout his fins. He's even got more patches on his body and face. Can these changes happen this fast? I'm amazed! I've never had a marble betta change on me like this.

Here's some progressive photos of how his colors have changed...
Day 1...



Couple days later...his marbling seems a bit darker. His ventral fins got some color.


Photos taken yesterday.. he's got more color in his tail and is showing small patches his body and face.


^mr. grumpy gills! :P

Yaye! Marbles are so fun! Mine was orange with blue streaks in his fins when I got him, and now hes got black speckles everywhere within a couple months! Marbles are the best, I dont think I'll ever get a non marble <3

Oh, yes they do!!
Your betta's colors are beautiful! Such a big difference, that blue is really bright and lovely!

I have a new marble boy I received only 2 days ago and the difference is shocking! He looks like a totally different fish!
Here's my little guy:

Yep! That is actually pretty slow for a marble. Some have been known to go from entirely white to entirely blue in two days!

It just looks like he colored up. A lot of bettas do that after being put in a better environment.
