I have no idea if they are male or female either. I believe the blue one is a male and the white one is female. I live in a upstairs apartment in SoCal and both aquariums are running between 80-83 F right now. One is a 2 gallon bowl and the other one is a 5 gallon filtered. I change the water often in the bowl (20-25% daily, 1 per week 50%) and do a 50% change in the 5 tank every 5 days (is planted and cycled). Is that adequate? Both have live plants.
The top one looks just like mine except mine is a female. =)

So I fell for the baby betta ploy today at my Petco. She was the only baby on the rack. My petco's baby rack is off to the side by all the horrible small tanks. Not only was she the only one on the rack she was surrounded by cups of moss balls! So.... meet Wanda!!

So I too picked up a little baby betta yesterday at Pet Co because I just couldn't resist how cute this little guy was (or at least I think it's a he!):

I currently have him in a little tank I picked up with a tiny bubbler that I added in order to put a little bit of oxygen into his water. I don't have a heater currently, but the water temp. measures 72 degrees. Is this an ok set up for now? I'm just concerned that he won't make it because he wasn't doing well in the store the day I picked him up :/ Also, would it be ok to put my Marimo moss in with him? Or would that cause health problems? I know that Marimo moss does well with adult bettas, but I'm not sure if it would ok with baby ones. I'm super excited to see how he grows. I have a suspicion he might be a VT, but maybe not!

Aw the pic isn't showing up.

You definitely need a heater though, lower temps mean that his metabolism is going to slow down and he won't grow as quick as he should. And yes, absolutely put the marimo in, plants are fantastic for any sized fish.

Here, have you read through this? If not, it's good to take a look: http://www.bettafish.com/showthread.php?t=457330

Went through your profile to take a peek at the picture, and the little squirt is pretty cute! The dorsal fin looks huge! Once you get him warmed up and healthy I wonder what color he will turn out to be! That thread lilnaugrim linked above is your best friend.

I have a little update on Wanda! Shes super rambunctious and is full of life! The edges of her fins are developing a black line pattern, along with the edges of her scales. I heard this is called pineapple? Is that correct?
Bonus! Here is a little video of her playing with my finger.

Thanks everyone! I took your advice and moved my little baby into a bigger tank with a heater and my Marimo, and he's pretty happy! :) Here, let me try to post the picture again:
