Baby betta just escaped into my sorority!

I was just doing a water change on my tank and accidently tipped the floating breeder box that is housing my baby betta. S/he took off like it was the greatest thing ever - FREEDOM!!!

I'm scared though, s/he is tiny compared to my girls! They are totally ignoring the baby right now and s/he has plenty of places to hide so I'm just going to leave him/her be for the time being unless. Too many plants to try and catch him/her...I hope s/he's okay...

The worst part is now I won't know how much s/he gets to eat!

Sounds like a great photo opportunity.

Make yourself a snack & get the camera ready.

I want to see some photos of this escape artist.

Did you you get the NLS pellets to replace the ones your dog ate??

Yes I did!

So far the little escapee is exploring and basically loving the freedom. A couple of the girls have flared at him/her but the baby basically ignored them. WHAT HAPPENS IF THE BABY BECOMES THE ALPHA? Lol.

I'm going to take some pics/video right now.

She'll be fine, they tend to pick fallen food from the tank floor or off deco. I hope it is a girl after all

i am soo in love with how you decorated your tank. looks absolutely amazing!!!
Looks like the baby is doing fine! Sounds like you are keeping a close eye on her too so I wouldnt worry unless you see the others picking on her a little too much!
You make me want to get another baby or two so bad!! I think I'll have to go next wednesday when I'm up that way and see what they have

Thanks! I think it looks like a mess right now because I have random plants floating everywhere and stuff, but now that it's finally got clear water it doesn't look too bad. :D

The tank is 29g. Right now it has 10 bettas (9 females and the baby) and 3 otos and I want to add cories at some point in the future but need the plants to get a bit more established first so they don't uproot them...
