Okay, so all of the Local Pet Stores I've been to has never sold a baby betta, or at least none that I've seen. I've read about all the people getting baby bettas from Petco and really wanted one, even though I know it's bad to sell them at such a young age! Anyway, when I saw this baby betta, at PetSmart, marked under "Female Bettas" I instantly bought her for $3.99, cause I knew I probably wouldn't get another chance.
If you look in the far back right, you can see a dead betta I pulled out. Really sad.
Her water was dirty and cloudy, and she was/is extremely skinny.
I brought her home and acclimated her to this 1 gallon tank.
She barely moves, so pictures were easy. Her fins are slightly blue, and she usually hangs out near the bottom.
I decided that she was shy and didn't feel really hidden or safe, so I added some silk and soft plants to give her opportunities to hide, as well as an IAL that she enjoys hiding under.
My most recent picture of her. Captures her colours quite nicely.
Big thanks to Lilnaugrim, who suggested I start a journal, and I was inspired by hers.
Hopefully, when she's older, I'll be able to add her to my sorority.
But as MattsBettas pointed out, it's really hard to guess her gender right now, so she might end up being a he!
I'll try to keep this journal updated, and thanks for your interest in my baby betta!
