sorry :( still better that you had her though at least she was loved and in the clean water .
I would think disinfect that container she was in if you ever will use if for another betta.

I'm so sorry for your loss. At least you can know that you did everything you could for that little girl.

Thank you everyone. I really wish I could save a baby. Is it something I did? Do petco babies ever make it?

From what I've heard, it's extremely hard to help them survive. They are subjected to horrible conditions like cold water, high levels of ammonia and those tiny cups in such a crucial stage of development in their lives.

Ooh my gosh, I'm so sorry you lost her QQ At least the little cutie had a nice home in her final days, and someone who loved her c: And I doubt it was your fault - petco's baby bettas hardly ever make it simply because of what they were subjected to at such a young age. Even if they are well cared for like yours was, it's hard to help them survive. Still, I'm so sorry - she was adorable. :c

Poor precious baby.
You are a saint for taking in such a small animal with such little hope (as some would say).
Most people would not think twice about rescuing such a "common" fish....
What a sweet thing you did, though.
The little guy at least had clean water and a loving home before he passed.

I'm sure you did nothing wrong. I think alot of problems with these babies is that the stresses they endure (shipping, poor water quality) are just too much for most of them - especially the real little ones. Like I said earlier - out of 4, only one survived but that one seemed to be in fairly good shape in the store. The other 3 I picked were obviously in bad shape.
