Baby Betta Journal ~Merlin~

This is going to be a journal on the development on the baby betta, Merlin! I'm fairly sure Merlin is a boy, if not, Merlina! On to the journaling! :)



This is Merlin's heated and filtered 5 gallon home. I've got 2 small pieces of natural driftwood, one with java moss on it and some floating frogbit. I think he's really loving all the space, but so far he's pretty terrified of me!



Here's Merlin in his cup on his first night, acclimating. He's just over an inch long, I think. I didn't really measure, I'm just guessing, but he's really tiny.



Here he is just today, he's really zippy and hard to take a good picture of! Very scared of fast movements and such, but break out the crushed pellet and he's a little monster!



Such a cute face, I couldn't resist.



Not the best pic, but it shows his iridescence pretty well.



That's it for today! I'll try to update with growth pics at least once a week!

Watching the babies grow up on journals is my favorite thing to do on here, I decided it was my turn to do it myself!

Also, I'll be doing 50% water changes everyday to prevent the stunting hormone from taking any effect. I'm also feeding crushed NLS Betta Formula 3 times a day.

Subbed! Really can't wait to watch him grow up. I know how you feel, I watched other babies grow up via journal and had to do it for myself! lol It's a great feeling though, knowing that you helped them grow up!

Thanks for subbing. I can't wait to see what color he fills out to be! In certain light he looks sky blue, and in other light he looks a little reddish. So it's a toss up right now!

I'm really excited for this baby.

Week 1 growth update!

Omg, he's so cute and tiny! His color is really coming in too! His first few days he was really afraid of me, but now he's not afraid at all and even comes to greet me! Also started feeding frozen bloodworms to all my bettas yesterday and he goes absolutely bonkers over them himself. He's turning into quite the character!
