Bought a new Crowntail female

I just bought a Blue crowntail female from Petco which I also took to the counter a dead Veiltail male and the cashier didn't even seem like he cared. He just wanted to get us checked out and gone. Soulless *******. Anway, I found a very tiny female who looks like she is very young. Pictures are below of her. To see my other fish go to my page and go to albums. Can anyone tell me how old she is? To me she looks like a few months old but I don't know as this is my first time having fish.

Thanks. She is very tiny. She is the tiniest one I have seen at the petco so far. My boyfriend picked her out and he made a great choice. I was upset when I saw the dead male was on the shelf.

Thank you Bsalem05. I was lucky to find her. If you go to my albums you will see that my other girls are bigger than Midnight (betta above). So I was surprised ot see such a tiny young female in Petco. Most of them are bigger. Once we come back to Ohio we are gonna buy a male

Ohhh I've seen so few CT females! And the ones I did were practically emaciated. Tiny food for the sweetie. I'm jealous.
