I got this little booger at PetCo this past Thursday and rather than clog up the baby thread, I'm going to start my own journal to keep track of it's progress. :D
It's nickname is V/C since I can't tell what sex it is yet- if it's female, it will be Viola and if male, Cesario. Shamelessly stolen from Twelfth Night because it's my favorite play and fits this gender confusion quite well. No real idea what the color will turn out to be, but I recall someone said that stripey babies usually have dark bodies and non-stripes have lighter?
I'm guessing it's around 5-6 weeks old, maybe older considering its growth might have been stunted. But it's still completely see-through, and less than an inch long. I had planned on getting one a little older, but you know how that goes. V/C was just so small and delicate I couldn't leave it!
More updates to come! I can see it's organs pretty well, so if anyone can help me figure out what betta ovaries look like I might even be able to sex it pretty soon. :D
