new (very) baby fish - photo

I am new to bettas and on this past sunday I got this baby fish that looks like a tadpole! I had bought another baby one about a month ago which was a bit older than this one. That baby is doing ok, so I figured I would try another. At first I thought this fish would die. He just lay on the bottom under the heater. But now he is coming out and active. He eats alot though I have to crush the pellets to dust. He is so small, less than one inch.

I found it not quite hot enuf for the 2.5 gall tank my other 2 boys are in. However it is doing a good job for this baby fish as the tank is smaller. that water is just over 82 degrees right now. The baby seems to like it.

He's really cute. And extremely small I've got a feeling he will be just fine. One thing I may suggest is try feeding him some frozen or dried bloodworms or brine shrimp every once in a while. My little guy likes them and I hear there good for them.

Thanks for this suggestion. I bought some freeze dried shrimp but they seem sooo big. I chopped some up, which was gross, but he did eat some. My other two bettas seemed to like it too. But it is gross to deal with. Maybe i bought a wrong kind. It's not a brine shrimp, that's for sure.

Well even if it's not it should be good for them you should see the freeze dried bloodworms they look like shriveled platy poop.
