They're very tempting Elleth lol and oh so cute!

And DangerousAngel - egg spots aren't a good way to sex fish as males sometimes have them too :)

@Kiesel, Yes! Ovaries for sure! It is a little girlie! Right now the logical guess is that she is VT, but she could be a DeT as well, won't know until she's a little bigger and if her ray's split any more.

@Tif, yep! Little boy and a VT. All tail types can have their ray's grow faster than the webbing, it's not just VT. Also on VT's, you'll notice the dorsal has a nice point to it, occasionally you get that on other tail types but for the most part, that's indicative of VT as well as that heavily slanted anal fin.

Yaaay :D I've been wanting a girl for so long, especially since my breeder female still hasn't arrived :/ I did get to see baby flares today though: I removed the card between her and Lucifer for some exercise and the little one got quite mad lol. She appears not to have a beard though... Or a very minuscule one. Is this normal?

The little bugger ate my favourite bladder snail, I've had this guy for months and he was pretty big, about as big as my thumbnail. She was okay with him for a day. I came home yesterday to find an empty shell and a very fat fish not happy about this, but oh well.

So because I'm not familiar with them I have a question regarding king/giant betta babies... The "baby" I have now (that I just posted a picture of) is nearly the size of one of my adult bettas (minus fins, I wish I could get an accurate comparison picture) but he's obviously very young... can you tell when they're very small that they'll be giants? Or is it just something they grow into? Forgive my ignorance, I'm trying to learn more - both about kings/giants and about why my 'baby' is so big :)

It's just something they grow into so even if you have a GiantxGiant spawn, you may only get 50% or less actual giants.

Wow everyone's babies are adorable! I wish mine sold them, but at the same time I'm glad they don't, I don't think they get good enough conditions. I'm glad people help them out when they see them though

Off topic but does anyone have anything to say on this plant?

Seems good and I want a carpet plant.

Yeah, dwarf sag is pretty nice, it's easy to grow. You can also try microsword as well, very similar to dwarf sag but smaller. Pygmy Chainsword is another good easy, carpet plant.

Our PetCo sells them so tiny, there were 4 full racks of them this time I went.
the egg spot is not a reliable way to tell. Young males can have them as well as females.
