Very first baby girl :) Need help naming

I recently upgraded Patriot's heater. I decided that, since I have a functioning left over heater that would do wonderful in a smaller tank, I bought another tank. It's a little bit bigger than a 2.5 gallon, but I'm not sure if it's quite a 3. The fish lady at Petsmart and I just decided to pretend it was 3 gallons. xD

I picked up some multicolored gravel and decided I would get a female betta. She is so stinkin' adorable. She's SUPER tiny, which is why I picked her over all of the others. I can't quite tell what her color is, but I'm assuming once she settles in, she'll color up a bit more. :) I love her. She has the cutest little face. x3

But! Her mouth is too tiny for the pellets! D: ahsjdhfkj What should I feed her? I'm running out to the fish store tomorrow to get medicine for Patriot, as he's come down with fin rot, so I'll be needing to find some kind of food for her that she can actually eat.

I don't think she's a baby, but she's really tiny. I know female bettas are just smaller, but the other females were pretty big compared to her. She's loving her tank though! She zips all over the place, stopping suddenly to stare at something before zipping away somewhere else. She has a super tiny ghost shrimp buddy that she likes playing tag with. She saw him for the first time and just froze and stared, then creeped up at him and quickly tapped him before zipping away. Poor little guy had no idea what happened. xD

I don't really know what to name her. I originally nicknamed her Princess with the intent of buying her a pretty pink castle and pink plants, but that was before I got to the fish store and picked her out and found there weren't any pink castles that didn't have door cut outs or cost me an arm and a leg to buy. I figured the ones with the door cut outs would be a bad idea. My betta would be that ONE betta that thinks she can fit through a door and get stuck in it. :( Don't want that happening.

Instead, I got her a set of fake plants and a ship wreck that actually looks really nice :) She likes it. She's so tiny, it's hard to find her in there sometimes! Harder to find her than the shrimp, surprisingly.

This is her 3(?) gallon Critter Keeper.


This is her with the flash on.


Ghost Shrimp buddy, Ly. :)






Anyone have any idea what her colors, color pattern, and tail type are? And any idea how old she is, approximately? I don't think she's full grown, at all. Maybe she's too young to actually have colors yet? o3o I have no idea. She's so freakin' small and adorable and ahsjdhfgk.

Need help naming her too, by the way. xD;

She's definitely a female. I saw the vertical stripes they get, and I forgot that happened when they were ready to breed, so I was all confused xD

You can crush up the pellets so she can eat them if they're too large. Looks like a vt or pk but its hard to tell.

I broke one in half with my finger nail, but she ignored the little crumbs. :( Do they sell smaller betta food? Or is there some other type of food I can give her, if she won't eat the pellets?

Congrats. She's very cute! Hmm, maybe name her Mia? That's the first name I thought of when I saw her. Good luck picking a name out.

Lavender might suit her since she looks like she has kind of a light purple coloring
