I knew I read your log somewhere . . . just couldn't remember. lol

I stand corrected - there are actually 6 bettas. #3 and 4 are pale. I thought they were the same.
They still look like females - very small dorsal. Don't be fooled by aggression. Some females will fight it out. It shows that you've done a great job keeping them healthy. But it is always safer to keep them in solitary.

There will still be a lot of fin growth if they were 2 months old. But after 4 months, usually there is little growth OR fin and body grow equally. . . . though anal sometimes still grows (faster than other parts).

I knew it... I was like "Its dorsal doesn't look like any of its brothers.." lol.. Thanks
Recommend each tank for each female???

Oh.. sorry did I say 2 months... If I did, I meant to say 4 months... They hatched/freeswimming on AUGUST 25... so I think that is like 4 months... Idk if they are growing slower than some peoples Betta's or not... but I think they might get bigger because their mother is like a GIANT compared to them.. she is about 3 more inches longer than them... I think the biggest one #5... is at 2 inches or less...

It does look like they are still growing with fins and such... ... OMG... did you just say that I should keep them in their containers and not release them?

If you talking about the male photo when I first got him, then no.. it was because of fighting with other males in his aquarium housing.. he was housed in a large aquarium with other males that he grew up with...
