Be careful, others have bought them, and due to their fragility, they died. So be veerryyy gentle with him, FREQUENT water changes to keep him healthy, warm water, and good food. :)

I was at a Petco in Tacoma Washington yesterday.... I couldn't believe that they had Betta babies , at least 15 of them. They were so tiny . Like an idiot, I felt sorry for some of the adults in about 2 inches of blue water.... ARGGGGG.... ended up getting a delta double tail... THAT's what I get for reading about all these rescues on here !!!!!

when i got Chappy, she was a month old, and just a speck. had to keep her heater in ALL THE TIME, at a constant 81F, daily water changes, fed BBS once a day, crushed New Life Spectrum once a day.... it was so much fun, watching her grow up....

Just bought one of the babies myself and she's probably the most happy of my bunch. Fed them some glassworms and she ate a good 1/2 dozen of them.
