My baby might have to be postponed :( unless I can find a sitter for 6 weeks. My friend watching Jack while i'm gone works 60 hours a week so she won't have time to monitor and take care of a baby as well as her own Betta and tropical fish tank.

when you do get one, a one gallon heated for those little petco bettas is fine.they can get lost in one.lol. put saran wrap over the tank to keep the air in the tank warm and humid for development of the labyrinth organ. i grew mine out until he was 10 weeks or so and transferred him to a 10 gallon. i changed his water once a week but i think that the marimo really filtered the tank very well. and not overfeeding. he was so small i tested for ammo and never saw any. i still changed his water because my fish food leaves a bit of an oil slick. plus, who doesn't love fresh water. 60 hrs. a week... no rest for the wicked, right? when you are done slaving, there is a baby betta waiting on you ;)

I put mine in a breeder net that was in a 20 gallon tank. The net didn't really stay in place and I would find the adults in with the baby but she turned out to be a female so it all worked out for me.

I'm so proud of her - she recently hit adulthood :)
