Yeah, it is a male, it looks like there are 2 parts.

Since it's a baby, I assumed that a 1Gallon tank was enough, but i'll update his tank ASAP.

My room is always like 76+... its the hottest room in the whole house, and nobody knows why... even at night, WITH the windows open ,its only gotten to like 70-72.. and im afraid of getting a heater for just a 1 gall, so that's going to have to wait as well.

Thanks for the replies, guys.

Well... The reason bigger is better is because you can keep a tank stable for temperature =D remember, during the night the temperature does drop.. A heater for a 1 gallon isn't all that safe, so just wait until you upgrade and ekep him away from drafty windows :)

Also bigger is great for less water changes. I'm temporarily quarantining females in 1 gallons, doing 75% water changes every other day. It's kind of a pain but soon they will be outta QT and in a nice big warm tank :D

I agree =D smaller tanks are good for quarantines... But for little babies, I suggest something like a 2.5 :3 decently sized if you are short on space, but you can heat it...

Yea, i'll work on it. I was kind of questioning the top fins... they seem to be split in two.. is that just genetics or did something happen?
The reason I ask is because Sena's avatar has a betta with a fully intact top fin. o.O

It can be from something in the tank... any plastic plants? or sharp innards of a hiding spot?

It's nothing to worry about, and at that age I'd say the fin should grow back nicely. Clean, warm water and good food =D

I thought it was a girl at first glance, but the flaring makes it look like a boy. (:

Best of luck with your new fish!
