I've had my petco baby for about 9 weeks now, and he's been confirmed male for quite some time, but I can still see a false egg spot...sneaky sneaky.

The weaker males use the egg spot to fool the bigger males. It's really intelligent. Anyone think bettas are the smartest fish?

My new baby DT...had to get her because she was the worst looking betta there (besides the dead ones) :( She either has fin rot or looks like she was in a fight or something. I'm hoping it is a female so I can add her to the sorority:

Here she is right when she got home:


And here she is after eating some blood worms and getting warmed up in her new tank:

That's halarious! My HM male, Surf, is on the smaller side, and he looks like a female now, because a platy tore up his fins, and he's always showing submisive signs to his neighbor. I was wondering why Zeus won't flare at him.

It makes me really happy when people save a betta instead of just buying one.

She looks extremely sick Viva! Glad to know she's eating. She will be super gorgeous once she gets better. She'll definitely enjoy swimming around with the other pretty ladies! would she be the first DT in your sorority?

I have a question about feeding, my little guy is almost four months ( I think) and I was wondering when I should start cutting his food back to more adult portions. He has been getting fed two Omega pellets twice a day and one once a day, so five pellets total, but I noticed he's starting to look a little chunky so I cut him back to four total and he looks better. I just wasn't sure if that would be enough for him to keep growing and stay healthy.
