Wink Hello

Hi I'm new to this site but not to bettas. My daughter gave me a betta about three years ago. It came in a planted container with the lucky bamboo. It past away about 6 monthes ago. After going to the local pet store a few weeks ago I got a baby betta (looked like a tiny minnow, lol), I searched the internet on how to care for them and came across the site and boy oh boy didn't know half of what I learned here. Since I got my first baby ended up getting another two!!! one baby and older one. Hope to gain friends and more knowledge in this community.

Thank You!! Yes I am going to post pics as soon as I can find software that I can use for my laptop so it will download my pics. Because I would like to find out if someone would know exactly what kind of Bettas the two babies are.

Great! Yeah I've gotten pretty good at sexing baby Betta's although some still confuse you right up to maturity haha.

My oldest is a delta tail and I'm thinking maybe the same for the babies but not sure. The first baby betta that I got turned out to be blue(Freedom), then the second baby red orangish/black and aqua(scud), and last but not least we got Bam Bam(grandson named him) is white dragon scale with red fins. I thought Bam Bam had a funny looking tail so I sat there really watching him and looks that his tail must be repairing itself cause it clear.

Yup there are types of colors called Cellophane, just regular clear fins. Sometimes they have just a band of clear fins as well around colored fins making it a Cellophane butterfly coloration which is pretty cool in my opinion

They all sounds adorable though ^_^
