Athena, the Baby Betta

On Sunday, September 29th, 2013, I rescued a baby betta from Wal-Mart. I'll try to get a pic up. S/he was extremely pale, almost white. The cup was filthy and I felt so bad.
Today 10/1:
I now assume it's a girl. I can't be too disappointed if it isn't.
She has more colour in her now.

Athena is doing great. But I have to ask, do female bettas flare, too? I also notice that Athena's abdomen has gotten larger, but not at an alarming rate. Possible egg spot still visible. There is definetly a lot more colour now. A beautiful solid red with a aquamarine hue.

if you can't see the picture, here's a link to my album. There's a before picture in there as well:

Yes, females will flare. As far as her stomach being big she might be eggy.

She's doing great :) Athena has so much personality. I think I'll be able to teach her to swim through a hoop in no time.

Since I have her in a critter keeper, I am going to go to Wal-Mart sometime to get her a bigger tank with a filter. I also need to make room for my new rescue.
