Petco baby betta

That's impressive growth..

I got a baby 10 days back and s/he hast grown much yet. It did not have any stripes and I think was a little older than most baby Bettas pictured on this forum. He or she eats like a pig but has no color except dark body. At this time it's a wait and watch game.

It would be great if any of you experts out there can comment on sex/color/tail type?

I forgot to mention.. The baby is in a 10 gallon by itself and eats frozen brine shrimp, blood worms and some regular flake food.

Today when I showed him/her a mirror that little thing flared up so well.. I was so excited.. It was like my baby is growing into an adult.. But I'm still wondering about the color or future color that he or she will be.. Has any of you seen babies that look like this? If yes how did they color up when they grew older?

This is a great thread.. The betta bug bit me recently and I went through each of these pages but havet found a baby that looked like mine..

Looking good Ketpatt! It's a boy, a VT and is a Chocolate Betta (brown/blue body with yellow fins, it's a type of bicolor)

Thanks for replying.

When I got this baby I was ready to accept any color/sex/fin type I would end up with. But in my head I was thinking it will have some 'color' and be bright and colorful to look at. Never ever I thought I will have a brown betta. I accept the way he is now.

At this time its for sure he is going to be one spoilt and pampered boy considering I have only one pet.. this baby betta.. I hope he grows into a handsome adult. Hoping for some blue to show up.

Will update a pic on this forum in a few months..

Np.

If you shine a flash light on him, he probably already has some blue on him but it will strengthen with time. Just make sure you feed at least twice a day and do those daily/every other day water changes and he should grow up just fine ^_^

These are my babies that I got at Petco about a week ago. It was a little difficult to get a good picture of them because they were swimming around so much. They all looked so abused in their tiny little cups and these two still seemed happy and active so I had to save them from their evil little cups. They seem much happier now in their larger tanks and they seem to be doing quite well. The whitish pink one's name is Dani and the brown and red one is Charlie. Even after just a week Charlie's colors have brightened and it seems like his body may turn blue. I'm thinking that Charlie is a boy because when I put them near each other for a minute Charlie's beard when flaring looked pretty big. CHarlie also seems a little feistier. Dani I'm not too sure about, (s)he is much calmer and likes to chill on her plant. What do you guys think?
