Betta fry @ 12 days & showing COLOR 😍

I'm new to bettas, but after reading a lot about fry, I was so sad that I was going to have to wait 4-5 weeks before I saw any color, so this makes me so happy!!! I love these little babies!

These guys are pretty amazing to see.

What are/were you feeding them as tiny babies?
And now? Very curious.

Well my brine shrimp kept failing and they were too small for daphnia, so all I had was the Hikari First Bites powder and infusoria that I made myself with some shredded lettuce (which was all I had in my fridge &#128514. I bought some green water from the lady I got the daphnia from when they were a week old and started giving them that too. I also put 3 moss balls in there from an established tank and I'm pretty sure they were eating the tiny white worms (planaria?) that appeared out of nowhere on the glass. They are almost 3 weeks now and I just added frozen brine shrimp and frozen bloodworms to their diet, which I chop up as small as I can. I have only lost 6 [knock on wood] and I know their colors will change, but right now I can see lots of blues (dark/royal as well as turquoise), some red, a few white, some that look purple and some that look like a chocolate brown, and a couple that look golden. Can't wait to see what they end up looking like!!!

Check for baby brine shrimp or Cobalt Coral food / both come frozen, at the lfs. Cobalt Coral food also comes in a "powdered" form. And are very small.

Baby/Fry Dwarf Shrimp food

Vinegar eels are a great option too.

Very exciting to see how they develop.

Betta fry *update* 26 days old

Updated pics of my precious little babies.
*Disclaimer: the contrast of the photos have been adjusted so the fry are easier to see.

More pics

I feel like there aren't a lot of betta fry pics online so I'm posting a bunch for the newbies like me that have no idea what they are supposed to look like as they grow.

So adorable, look like miniature Plakats at this stage. I am glad you posted these it is true, not that many baby Betta pics.
