I've only had one baby for about a month (original occupant of the corner tank) & another one for a few weeks. So, don't think I can give any worthwhile advice.
it has an undergravel filter which works by using an airstone, explanation can be seen here:http://animals.howstuffworks.com/pet...equipment7.htm

Baby Betta in her new home :)

The baby loves her purple plant, lol! Definitely more calm today. I did her 50% water change, water tested good and temp is at 83 degrees. She even ate more pellets today. *yay*

pH: 7.6
Ammonia: 0
Nitrite:0
Nitrate: 0

Question: I did notice she is staying at the bottom more now but does swim around and comes up for air. She really likes her plant and I found her laying on the base a lot. Is this okay? The pic kinda shows you what she does. Also her fins aren't as open as before. I hope everything is okay.

Gah today I nearly got like 6 more babies, they were all so small I just WHY? They were tinyer than the babies you and I have now Raz, it was really sad. I want to punch the guy who thought it was a great idea to sell them.

FYI, Aquarius has that purple plant xD

She looks like a young female. She reminds me of my Lila- red ventrals and all. *sniffle*

My baby was 7-8 weeks when I got him. I'm not sure on the gender yet either so I just call him, him. I got him on July 4th so I've had him for about 3 months. He's the one in my profile pic. and avatar. Don't worry, mine did the same things but he's fine and healthy. Also, when I first got him I did a pretty lousy job at raising him. But luckily he's fine and I'm doing a better job. I didn't even plan on getting a betta. let alone a baby one.

I'm happy yours is healthy and thriving. Unfortunately my little baby Shelby died today. She got sick and her health declined too fast. I could not save her. So today was a hard day.

Well I hope your baby continues to grow and live a long life. Keep us updated on him.

Awwwh :( I'm sorry she died. Sadly, many people have had a hard time trying to keep the petco babies alive. I had 4 and only 1 managed to survive. I think they are put under too much stress at a too young of an age and their little immune systems just can't take it. Plus Petco's lack of care does not help.

However, if you do decide to try again, at least you know what to do.

That makes so much more sense. Still. Not my favorite tank.
