I purchased him Dec 18th (the first photo), and the bottom one was taken yesterday, the 12th.

So almost 2 months.
Here's the girl I bought with him. She was bloated and sick:


Archipelago is the little girl in front with the pellet in her mouth. (this photo was taken Monday)

I think it's a she, and even though she had stress stripes, she looked the biggest and most alert of all the babies. It's been exactly a week since I got her and she seems to be doing well! She's in the .5 gal zen tank I saw someone else mention and will be moving on up when the tank sale comes around.

I feed her softened pellets but am going to go back for some fruit flies at Petco. Since the pellets have a tendency to disintegrate, I scoop them up with my nail and stick my finger in the tank. She already knows that a finger in the water means food and has no problem eating off my finger.

I have a question, however. My male betta, who is growing old and sick, is eating pellets soaked in garlic for his immune system, and I have thought of giving her some of these, too, to help her fight disease. Good idea or no?
I was wondering about the garlic too.

To celebrate 1 month of having my betta baby, I upgraded the cutie into a 5gallon tank~
Darling is definitely loving the space as opposed to a 1g with a silk plant crammed in it for shelter.

I'm still debating gender, but managed to catch a quick recording of it while it was flaring.
Opinions?

Our Petsmart has babies too. Oh, and by the way, I'm new here. :) This is a wonderful site. :) A very small male had caught my eye at our store over a month ago. He was still there every time we went in, and I finally got him yesterday. He is currently about 1.5 inches long, and has visibly grown since I first discovered him. The cup labeled him as a Half Moon. I'd be interested in hearing assessments from you... this is the first betta I've had in over 20 years. He's in my avatar.

I look forward to spending more time here. So glad I found this place.

my seven year old betta just died, so I've been planning what I am going to do now that i have no bettas. i think iwill probably get a baby betta! I am going to feed it live foods it's whole life, and keep it in an npt. The tank will probably have a few cories and some shrimp, and some snails, but then other then that just a betta
