New baby betta

I went to Petco the other day to get cat food, I cant go there of course with out walking by the betta's, So I walked by the bettas and found the smallest baby betta i have ever seen there! I tried to take pictures but its to small to even show up! This is the third baby i've rescued, also the tinyest. I hope the little thing makes it! Wish me luck!

If you can find frozen baby brine shrimp (not adult frozen brine shrimp), I think Petsmart carries Hikari's everywhere. Also consider ordering golden pearls small enough for the baby's mouth. Preferably .10-.24 mm sized.

If you can't get live food. Get new life spectrum pellets .5. You will probably have to crush it. i fed it to Yuki when i got her, and she is doing well. Good luck!

Tiny and Squirtle (squirt)

RIP:To all my sweet bettas swimming under the rainbow bridge. Shall miss you all.

I've been feeding it baby brine shrimp but it even spits those out. I have been crushing micro pellets as fine as I can and I think it got a few bites in its tummy at least. I just cannot believe they would even think of selling them this small! And they have them advertised as "great school or office"

I also made the mistake of looking at the "betta fish" tag on Instagram. People are terrible.
