Mine are all selling them now, they are probably less than a month old or right around a month, so no clue if they are males or females and no color to any of them, they have wording on them that say "get a baby and watch it grow up" this is so irresponsible of them
Yes, mine has. I know now it's a bad thing for them to be selling them that young but that's how I got mine.:) It wasn't until after I started searching about care for baby bettas that I found out how bad it was that they were selling them that young. But if they hadn't I wouldn't have ended up with my baby, Sushi. I know probably not the best name for a fish but I like it.:)

Thanks everybody, I look forward to reading replies once I am off work. But woke up to a curious little Heart Breaker! He looks great. And I thought new avatar of him was appropriate! I'll be on after work ;)

How much are bettas in the U.S? Im from Australia and just wanted to know out of curiosity. :)
usually bettas in stores can range from $2 to $20. But they can go up to hundreds of dollars. I've heard of some that are over $1000. But yay usually there only between $2 to $20

Hi CandiceMM. I'm doing fine. I was just looking at my betta. It's so cute watching him swim with his little fins. I need to pick up some type of protein food for my baby too. Currently I've just been feeding him crushed flakes cause he's to big for pellets.

P.S. How did you do that sort of collage of heart braker?

Some high protein foods for your baby would be omega one betta buffet pellets and new life spectrum betta pellets... I dont know of any high protein baby pellet formulas, so you may need to crush them if these are too big.

Im glad your doing well and high protein and fatty foods for a juvenile would be good. You can get frozen blood worms or frozen brine shrimp and cut tiny amounts. Or they see micro pellets that are very tiny, or get dried blood worms and cut them into tiny pieces. Your baby would love it!!

I did it with an App on my iPhone. If you private message me some pics I would love to make one for you?
