Smile New baby betta :)

Hi everyone! I went to petco last night just to browse tank accessories for my betta Loki, and this little baby basically cried out my name, so of course s/he came home with me! Does s/he look healthy? Also any age/gender/color/fin guesstimates? I've read almost every thread I could find here on baby bettas, and I've raised baby mollies before, so I'm really hoping for success with this baby! Thanks in advance :)

This is my first time posting pics so I hope it works!

It looks like he or she is a crowntail... do you see the little points on the fins? I can see them on the tail but cant tell on the other fins. It looks like it will be red and black.

When it gets a little bigger look underneath, if you see a little white spot then it's a girl. Sometimes you can't tell at first for a month or two.

I recommend New Life Spectrum Grow pellets, and feed two or three times a day. And keep the water warm so you don't stunt the growth. Its so much fun to watch the babies grow!

Thanks everyone! You should see her today, she got a fat little belly after she ate. I've been referring to her as baby girl so I guess we'll see! I'll update pics soon :)

looks like a result of mix breeding to me ( and yes they do looks like a VT especially when a ct involved, I think the different is if u later breed it with the "original" tail types ( of any of their parents ), it "returns" faster than a real VT. It's quite hard to identify the gender looking at the pic because, 1. no ventrals, 2. looks skinny. But I think this one is probably a female. Time will tell :)
