From what I read they are to young to tell if they are male or female and I would think unless you know how to raise Betta fry it would be hard to keep alive, Especially since baby Bettas need live foods.

I have 4 babies & 4 juveniles. All purchased through Petco. The babies are super cute, but a LOT of work. I have to do daily water changes, they eat about every 6 hours or so , they have to be kept pretty warm & don't like fluctuating temps and they stress easily. Very hard to tell the sex on them when they are super tiny. I got a surprise when I found a CT in the mix at the store. They are fragile little things, but I find taking care of them rewarding. My oldest just got moved to her "big girl" tank and my other 3 juvies will follow in another week or 2 depending on their growth and overall health. The 4 very young babies will stay in the "nursery" most likely for another month or two. They were super tiny when I took them home. Good luck finding any right now, some of the Petco stores in this area are out or almost out. One employee told me yesterday that new fish arrive on Wednesdays, so if you are up to the challenge, good luck! I'll try and post a pic or two, if not they are on my profile page.

The first is my little CT (possibly/hopefully) female Emily. The second is my tiniest boy rescued the same day as Em, Matthew and the third is my "oldest baby", Siobhan. She's at least 3 weeks ahead of the others. I don't have great pics of the twins, but their on my page and I have yet to take any of my other juvies because I just got them today. My littlest started showing SBD problems today. Fine earlier in the day, but not great later on. Sigh. Hope he makes it, he's so cute!
