Gave into the baby betta craze

Couldn't help myself! It was so cute!! I got a .75 gallon critter keeper and heater to keep it in till he/she grows up a little bit and some hikari first bites to eat. I also have some frozen bloodworms, live micro and banana worm cultures, and bbs eggs I can hatch if need be.
I feel like I know enough from researching and trying to spawn my own pairs to keep him/her alive successfully but I'm open to suggestions if anyone wants to give me ideas on how to care for it best!

Here's a pic of my cute little double tail baby :)

I should ask if I can put her in a 1/3 gallon breeder net in my sorority tank. My heater just broke and the spare is in that tank...would this be an issue?

The only issue I see is that you'd potentially be exposing your sorority to possible disease since you aren't quarantining her first.

Good luck!! I recently got two babies myself. So far, so good. They're just too adorable to pass up!

As long as you know about the frequent water changes and feeding several times a day, you're fabulous. Your baby is so cute!

I am just (hopefully) finishing off shipping of my batch of baby bettas...they have been so fun to keep, even for the short time I had them. I am keeping two of the babies, and I think those two issues I mentioned are the most important, at least for me.

Thanks for the replies! I'm starting to think that it might be a crown tail double tail, I see spikes coming off every fun. Hoping it's a male but happy with either.

I really just don't know what else to do till I get a replacement heater, I don't get paid for another week and so I can't afford to replace it right now. Normally I have some males in my extra 10 gallon (divided in bowls) but now that that heaters broke my only option is either to put it in the sorority in a breeder net or keep her not heated at 75*

I personally think you could float him/her. Just be careful so the females will not get in.

Yeah, floating would work but I feel bad to give her do little room. But if that seems to be the best idea how long should I QT since its so small could I do less time?
