New baby betta

I know people hate petco because they sell babies, well honestly I have wanted one for a while. The idea of not having any idea what it will look like, and watching it grow is just to appealing. So anyways went to petsmart and petco with every intention of getting a betta. Petsmart had ziltch, and petco didnt have anything to stunning and then I saw the babies and knew I had to get one. So I would like to present Yuki. Which is a name that will work for a boy or a girl. Yuki is soooo tiny but she wasnt the tiniest one there. I also didnt want one that was showing to much color. But anyways I am leaning towards a she, but dont know and know I wont know for a while. But anyways in the right light she does have a greenish blue sheen to her, but only time will tell. She is in a small 1 gallon at the moment with water temps around 82-84.

Ha ha. . . I know what you mean, that a lot of people frown upon it but you just really want one. I kind of want one too. Looked at them today. Then again I want a baby betta, i want to adopt the most pathetic betta that is there . . and I want to adopt my first girl betta.

The baby betta thing seems pretty fun. Not knowing what it will look like .. . being able to keep it in a small container at first and it not being cruel .. . so many pluses. Also you can say it was taken care of very well from a young age, so maybe it will be healthier than if it was neglected at a store for a while. Please keep posting pics of how it changes.

Haha I know they are so cute! You dont have a girl yet *sigh* I just love my girls. I have 4 as of yesterday.

And will definatly keep updated on him/her! So excited to see what he/she will become! Oh and I am decorating her tank today yay!

I agree they sell them way to young, but since they do sell them so young I thought why not take advantage of it, and try and save at least 1 from a owner who doesnt have a clue.
