Baby Betta

I know this sounds crazy but....I have a male betta in a tank by itself and the other day I noticed that there is a baby betta swimming in his tank. I'm stumped...

I doubt it's a baby betta. Could you post a pic?

The Betta that was in the tank is a white HM. This is the fish that "appeared".

I did try to mate him with a red female betta, but they fought so I took him out, and put him in another tank. Can male betta's store eggs and then fertilize them?

No you may have scooped a egg out with the male and not noticed it. The little guy has survived through all sorts of stuff like finding food avoiding dad (who will eat him now) water changes etc. Take him out asap he needs more water changes with longer aclimation time but has been probably eating dads crumpled food.

Thank You! I did take the baby out, I fed him some fry food, but he/she like the pellets (I crush them a little).
