My local PetCo went from 20 babies down to one in less than a week, I highly doubt they sold them all.

Are the baby bettas to old to be kept togather? I went to the store an they had a double tail baby betta. There was a tiny one that was dead it's sad for the baby bettas.

@TeaZag: Yes they might just be too old to be kept together. Most of them don't flare, but many of them still nip. No one should attempt this unless they are fairly experience with bettas and have spare tanks to house each fish attempted to be held together.

Sorry if this is already stated, but what should one feed a baby betta? I know the usual microworms and BBS, but I don't have any cultures :/ could they grow on crushed pellets/Hikari First bites?

I just have my baby betta in a 3 gallon tank with plants and a heater and I just feed it a little peice or crushed betta pellet food and I just make sure he eats it, I've had him for 2 weeks now and he's growing and doing pretty good :)

Sasha is getting bigger and starting to color in, and I'm noticing what looks like ich. It wasn't visible before when the lil thing was white bodied, but the blue is coming in now. I've had success with salt treatment before, and I wanted to know if it's safe to use this for babies, or if it'll be more dangerous because their organs are still developing? I'd rather use salt, but if I need to try medicine instead I will.

Thank you!
Sadly the little one didnt make it, i think he had some swimming problems

I also picked up 3 more babies
And have been gone the past 6 days, and they've done well, i came home and my Decap eggs had arrived, so they all 3 have full tummies, one of them is going to be all blue it looks like
another one looks bluish purple right now, and the last one just has red fins, i think that one will be the girl lol, she just looks girly

He is so cute! My Petco is not having a babybetta sale I don't think. I got my 2 bettas at Petsmart and they arn't doing it either. The petsmart where I went only had 1 adult female and 5 adult males!
