Hotaru's Baby Journal

Hotaru (Japanese for 'firefly') is my new baby betta from Petco. I picked him up yesterday (it's a 'him' here until proven otherwise), and he's been having a grand time!

He lives in a 1.75g KK-type tank, with a 7.5 watt heater (soon to be upgraded), and several silk plants. He eats NLS pellets, crushed, 1 every 4-5 hours.

So far he's had a great appetite, and he's full of spunk! He's so tiny, only about 3/4" long!

Of course, I have pictures!

Oh wow, he is really little! I got mine from Petco 6 days ago, but s/he was a little bigger than yours and wasn't transluscent (I'm thinking about 6/7 weeks on my guy). Keep us updated, I love seeing how the babies grow. :)

Day 3!

Someone's a little piggy!

I swear, Hotaru eats almost as much as Sir Reginald does!
He's got a big ole' belly today...

(Feeding time is the best time to get an in-focus picture of this feisty bugger!)

Hotaru is gonna be a fun one!

He's already started nipping at my finger at mealtimes!

Pictures to come later, after I head to the pet store (again), and I'll try to get a video of him trying to eat me!

Days 5/6

Everyone is doing very well at the Chateau de Snoe.

Hotaru is growing and eating and nipping, and Uncle Reg is flaring at his decor, as per usual!

Aw, the baby is so cute! Mine has so much personality as well! S/he ate right from my fingertip the other day. Something about these tiny little babies is just precious. :D
