I bought a baby betta from petco last week my first one so here is what i have seen so far in the week i owned one
- there was a about a dozen of them most of them were so young they were colorless, the one i chose was the only one with a light yellow tint, that why i chose him (or her ) dont know sex or tail type yet
- they eat it ALOT but DONT overfeed, for the first four days i was feeding 8 pellets a day which gave my baby betta swim bladder disorder, i have fasted it for the past two days and all is good now, from what am seeing its best to feed about 5 pellets a day through out the day , personally i feed new life spectrum betta pellets, because they are smaller pellets and i heard there the best type of betta food
- they poop ALOT, before i got the baby betta i read about how you had to change the water often and now i have seen it first hand , i have it in 1 gallon aqueon ,non filtered and am doing 100% water changes every two days , also if your tank has a filter i would be very careful as they like to explore a lot ever more than adults and since there smaller get easily stuck in place, i would avoid havin the filter on all together until the betta is grown
besides these things so far i havent seen much difference between caring for the adults and the babies, just have to keep on eye on them more, it is fun watching them grow, they grow very fast, mine has about doubled in a weeks time
