This is interesting to know. I plan on getting a baby after Christmas. I was hoping to get one purely because I tend to grow my bettas big and I was curious to see how huge I could get one if I started from an even smaller size/age. I wonder what my results will be!

Well keep us updated in your progress. I would be interested in knowing if you can make it grow as big or bigger than the rest of your fish. ^^

[quote=meiperfectneina19;1318403]That is interesting. Wonder if by exercising the fish it would lower the risks or amount of deformation.

-I doubt that. I read its just something that happens when they have too much finnage. But it could also just be a deformity so who knows...

heres my 2, they each have a deformity but they dont know it! lol

I think he is, but it has come to question a couple of times. I can try to take a picture of his underside to see if he has an egg spot.

In my siggy is a before and after pic of my female betta. She was so tiny, maybe about half an inch when I got her. Now she is almost 2 inches from mouth to tail base.

I've adopted two petco babies- one male, one female. They are both perfectly normal and extremely healthy.


I wonder that maybe some turn out a bit "deformed" because of malnutrition? I fed both my babies frozen brine shrimp right off the bat because they were so weak and tiny. Here they are now, Striker and Sydney.

So cute and that is great how much she has grown.

Cute guys. Well I don't know it might be the nutrition. I am feeding him pellets made for babies and blood worms. I bought some frozen brine shrimp today to add more variability.

the first betta ive adopted (since pitifully trying to keep them as a kid, ill confess), was a petco baby betta. took him home first weekend of july i believe. we've noticed no deformities, though i am in no way the fish guru some people here are. i am actually quite pleased with his size and fins and colors :)

this is a collage i made of him over time


however, i have noticed him to be much lazier than the betta i got as an adult. we picked up a sickly guy from a local grocery store, and he immediately flourished into the active exploratory betta you expect to have. baby blue, despite all signs of great health, is just a lazier fish. same temp tanks, been in both a bigger and smaller tank than the other. just naturally lazier is the only explanation. still very cute and playful though.
