Oh trust me i agree, its a shame these babies get sold like that, i really wished i couldve saved them all from being bought by anyone who doesnt know how to care for them! And yea i'll definitely put updated pics up when he/she frows more! Im pretty sure at this point its a "he" though =]

Another update picture! Still having a hard time telling its type and gender since its not looking quite like a male VT to me now, but this is my first baby so I don't know. It's ending up with mainly blue coloration (specially whenever I take a pic with flash) but still has a mix of reds and greens in its scales so it's still a mystery!

Thanks! Everyday it looks better and bigger! I did just recently put the baby in a bigger tank and added a tiny heater which makes such a huge difference! I also have a few nicer photos I'll have to post up sometime, he's a quick little guy so getting a great picture is proving hard lol

I find distracting them with a pellet in your fingers at the surface or with a mirror for them to flare at gives you a few more seconds to nab a shot.

Yea I've been distracting him with my finger but man he is just a quick one! I'm gonna try a mirror out on him a tiny bit since I've yet to test his reaction to that. I swear even in the past couple days his fins are showing signs of a possible bi-coloration on them! Here's hoping! :D

Another silly' ol upate!

Ive officially found out my baby betta is indeed a boy after i watched him flare at his reflection for the first time. He def has a manly beard goin! :D

Now that ive def figured out the gender im still totally stuck figuring out the type. When i first got him i expected he'd be a veiltail, but i seriously dont know now. Could he perhaps be a delta? Managed to snag these pictures today when he was showing off. Hes still a tad tiny, definitely has another growth spurt or two in his future! Just cant wait for him to grow up more so i can finally figure out a name for him!

He has has almost a tricolor going on on his fins, its hard to see in the picture but after the red he has some white coming in too! Its so pretty!

Sorry the picture is sideways, im uploading from my iPad and i have no clue why the website is roating it like that.
