So, I got a baby betta yesterday. I know, I know not smart, but they were going to "get rid" of 'him' if someone didn't buy him that day, and it was around 3:30-4 on a Sunday, so doing the sensible thing I bought 'him'. Okay, perhaps not the most sensible, but whatever. I've been looking around for information on baby bettas and I still haven't had a good journey kind of thread to read, which I've really wanted to, so I'm making my own:)
So here is what I have 'him' in:
heater at 82F
a few live plants-need more
This is what I've gathered about baby bettas, correct me if I'm wrong:
: 2.5-3 is good for beginning, it is easier to do PWCs on.
: 80-85F is good for growth and the creation of a good immune system
: Keep it clean, do frequent PWCs, but not too much at a time it stresses them out.
: Live and frozen are always better, small bites are good once they get around 1" or so long, but live or frozen is healthier and should be given over pellets.
Um, I think that's about it. Their also harder to keep and extremely small!
Anything else to add?
Here are some pictures; I'll add as the days go by and I learn new things!
I also want to say that I think my betta is a boy because it was flaring at it's reflection, but I'm not sure about that! Thanks!
