Other wise I'll need to buy extra tanks for the boys and hopefully adopt them out once they're old enough.
You need a ten gallon Miniumum for a Soriety.

I got a tiny colorless baby from petco last year. Put him in an unheated 1.75 gallon critter keeper and feed him only crushed pellets (obviously not ideal, but I knew nothing about fry). He is over a year old now, huge and healthy. I dont know why people are telling everyone they are so hard to raise. I have three more now ( in heated tanks this time) and the are all healthy, active ang growing. One has a swim bladder issue, but I knew that when I got him. Please dont be afraid to get them if you want. Must just die in those horrible cups.

Yeah. I find so many dead ones at the stores. All of them (for the most part) recover from their initial rough start and go on to be happy & healthy. Only one of mine has any lingering problems. She basically swims vertically with her tail down. I've just made her tank a little different to accommodate her needs. Like any babies, they require a little TLC.

Are baby bettas the same tail type in the end usually, or do they show all tail types evenly?

There seem to be a lot of veiltails but you can sometimes see a double right away. I'm not sure about the other tail types.

I've seen the doubles in person. They're pretty cool, but I never took one home. Others needed the place more. I've had 1 male & 1 female CT. Not the others though.
