I'm gonna step on some toes here, but those "babies" are the runts of the spawn. I have a 3 month old that is the size of the babies I've seen at Petco. He/she gets the same care as all my other fry, but it is just growing MUCH slower. I'd suggest if you get one, feed it grindals that are gut loaded with a high protein food.

I agree on the runts. I love them, but they are still quite small and i've had them over a month. oh well, for 2$ what can you expect. fun to watch them grow (slowly) anyway

They're probably also small because of the horrible care they're subjected to at a young age.

They end up not being fed or having clean water at a critical point in their development, i suspect most that survive will never grow to a normal size.

I agree with pretty much all that was said above. They sure aren't show bettas, but my Pammy is the sweetest fish I could ask for. She was tiny when I got her, and hasn't grown much.

Don't expect them to grow more than half a centimeter from the size they already are, at most a centimeter.

Thank you. I miss him a lot, but at least he's not in pain any more :(
My 8 year old who acts like a puppy is here for me, as well as my 2 kitties for comfort ^.^

I'm sorry about your rottie :(
