it should be fine since you have a big tank. maybe some babies are meant to be petite and because of you it got a second chance for to live life fully in a nice 10g tank =D

I got a baby betta recently. More like two weeks ago, really. S/he is adorable. Any idea how old s/he might be? I'm thinking s/he is really a boy... There's already a huge bubble nest (huge for him, that is), and he flared at me. It was more cute than intimidating, like an angry kitten hiss. xD Adorable rather than remotely frightening.

Here's a video of him. :) http://www.keek.com/LittleFishies/keeks/SH3Gbab

My baby 'Kaptyn' is my second baby Betta from Petco. The first one, Kaori, I rescued and complained to my Petco. The manager was a sweetheart and told me he would make sure that the Betta's looked better next time. I haven't seen much of an improvement sadly. Kaptyn is doing great! (knock on wood). I started a brine shrimp hatchery (located in Mass so if any Betta owners need some baby brine shrimp let me know) for her and she's currently on Hikari first bites. I keep her tank at a nice 79-82. I clean the bottom of her tank with a turkey baster once daily, and she is fed about 4-6 times a day. Good luck fellow baby Betta rescuers!

Also, how often is to often to change baby Betta water? I've been cleaning the bottom of the tank with a turkey baster nightly, but I really want the water to be as clean as possible. Can I do 100% water changes every 2 days? The tank is a temporary critter keeper tank half way filled out (1.75g when filled), heated. Help!

Curious question, can I feed regular brine shrimp that has been cut into baby betta bite size pieces? Also, does anyone have a good way of telling how old a baby betta is?

Baby pic update

Thought it was probably time to update the photos of my "baby," Chai Son. We're four weeks in now, so I'm guessing he is maybe about three months old or so? These were taken over the weekend. I still can't tell tail type - or maybe I just don't know what to look for. But he graduated from a 2 gallon to a 5 gallon tank this weekend and is LOVING the extra space to swim and play. The tank is still a little bare ... he's getting some more plants tonight.
