New "baby" betta!

Petco had a sale on their baby bettas. So, I fell in love and bought one. Also, they had their betta condos on clearance and had to grab one of those too. It's not a permanent home for this little guy, but until he grows up a little more, this will be home.



I went back to my love of ugly and sick bettas. He was laying on his side and pretty colored down. He has already perked up and gotten a little more red. Pretty excited to see what he grows into.

Whoa even from the pic I can see his budding coloration! He's going to grow up to be awesome! Cool!

He looks like is doing ok now, so hopefully he will pull through. Is he a plakat, or is that just the angle?

Thanks!

I'm not sure on what type yet or even what sex. I automatically call everything a boy until I see it's a girl. He is so tiny, that I don't know yet.

I think all he needed was some more swim room, fresh water, and a little attention. He has made a 180 already. I'm pretty experienced at "rescuing" bettas, so he's in good hands.

Haven't decided on a name yet...

OK. Honestly, my first thought was "female" because ofthe short pectoral fins. But, I am not a betta expert and I have only ever owned 1 female, so I don't really know. Just my thoughts. Pretty though!

I think he might be a female. He acts very female, if that makes any sense and so far has the shape of one. But, you never know. I had a sunshine veil-tail that seemed so much a female until he started growing up. So, for now, he's a boy. haha

Will do. I'm hoping for a female, currently only have males.

When I walked by and saw the displays of them at my local store I cried. I felt so bad for those little guys knowing they have even less of a chance than the adults.

Good luck with him/her.

That's how I felt. Everyone of the six or so of them where starved and half dead looking. I wish I could have bought all of them. I went on a betta shopping spree earlier this year and ended up with thirteen bettas. It was beyond what I could deal with. I found great homes for a few of them with my friends who wanted fish.

Anyway, she is doing great! She ate like a grubby little monster this morning and did a little betta dance. She has much more red to her now. I'm so proud <3
