I think to sell the baby bettas it's cruel. D: I dont have a petco where I live, and I'm glad.

[quote=bettalover2033;913103].He's a cute little guy (if he is a guy). That is pretty exciting because you are basically raising your own bettas into adults. Thats very cool! It's good for us to be able to buy them when they are still fry, but it is also, bad for the fry because just imagine how much their elders take on and can somewhat recover from, their immune system isn't even developed to take on harsh conditions in the pet stores. again, its a good think but a bad thing too.quote]



It is pretty cool how you get to raise your betta. Almost like having a spawn! I tihink the best part is the surprise. You have no clue what you are going to get. But, it must suck for the fish. :(
I would love to get one but I dont know how to take care of them. Maybe in a few months.

The best way is to do your homework and learn about their requirements and basics. Go to www.bettysplendens.com and you will find TONS of things from care to breeding.

Also, I agree with you because that IS exactly what IMO is the aim that the breeders that are supplying the fry, are trying to get across.

I have one that has survived almost 2 weeks now. My newest addition came from a sad situation in the store also. She (I'm pretty sure at least) is definitely higher maintenance than my others, but in a different way than some of my other "rescues". She gave me quite a scare last week when after opening her tank lid to do a water change, I realized that I forgot the net and in that short period of time, she jumped out and fell almost 3 feet onto the floor. I was sure she was a goner, but has done pretty good after that first night. I knew bettas jumped, but I hadn't ever experienced it before. I've never bred or raised young ones before, so any tips and advice would be welcome. I'll try and upload a picture from my BlackBerry soon. Thanks!

Hi! I'm new here also.
Here is my baby Pooh. Any guesses as to sex/type?
She seems quite healthy and active,
a good eater, too.

She looks like a little cutie! I like her tiny dorsal fin. If I had to guess the sex just from the picture it will be a Female since so far her ventral fins are small and look "female." Though you can't be too sure right now because it could be a he too, but I still would say she is a female (for right now).

Is it okay to call it a female right now?

I think it looks like a female, too, but then this is my first betta and anyone else here would know more

She doesn't have any color at all, I think the camera flash made the blueish sheen in the photo.

Anyway, I will post more photos here as she grows. When I decided to get her I figured I wouldn't know what she would look like but since I was getting her so young I would have her for a longer time
