I rescued a female 2 weeks ago. She wasn't listed as a baby but she was small enough to be! She lived for 2 days, not because of the ammonia in her cup but because of the ammonia in our water! Naturally it is 0.5..gr. but it is frustrating isn't it? You know what is wrong but sometimes it is too late...

I'm so sorry to hear that! And yes, it is so frustrating! I have the babies floating in my ten gallon, so when I change their water every day, I just fill a new cup up with my tank water (it's convenient because they are already completely acclimated to it), scoop them up with my hand, and rinse out the old cup for next time..My water parameters are perfect but I think the high ammonia just did too much damage...she was so tiny! I hope it was the ammonia and not something I did!

Awww I'm sorry she died :( She was a pretty little baby. At least she knew she was where she was loved at least.

I have rescued two babys from petco recently, I got frozen brine shrimps, let them thaw, and my babys have had no problems eating them! I hope she makes it!

S.I.P. She seemed like a great betta. Someday she'll meet you under Rainbow Bridge and you will get to spend all those great moments with her that you missed before.

Earlier, on this page it was said that she didn't make it.

Thank you all so much! Speaknow13, she did die I think she was too far gone when I got her

I did, however pick up another one to eat...the water in her cup is still icky, but I have already gotten some food into her (brine shrimp), which is hopefully a good sign. She watches me everywhere I go, and I managed to get her for free. And I brought up a filthy cup with an adult male and told them to clean it...

And speaknow13, I really want to see your babies but the picture won't show up!

Hey so I got one baby betta and I was fairly new at betta keeping so I doubted he'd live but he did and I just made sure he had a heater in his tank, and I got him the Hikari brine shrimp cubes and new life spectrum growth I think it's called. There are also tiny hikari pellets for like tetras and he really enjoyed those. I fed him 2 times a day.
