we have been keeping the little one we rescued at 86* like you said and she is doing awesome. she was sooo pathetic at first but she is really growing and is now super active and curious about everything. thanks

I just bought a female from Petco, and she is only 1 inch long! And all of the males were about half the size of the one I got from Walmart. I actually like the fact that she's so tiny. I'll get to watch her grow up!

That's why I want young ones. It would be pretty cool to watch them grow and change.

Yes- My Petco had 2 tiny ones labeled "baby". Also, I was wondering if my new halfmoon male I got there yesterday is a juvenile, he is pretty small and naps a lot on leaves, more so than the other betta I have. He also seems a bit more shy.

My closest Petsmart put out several "females" the day I got Aristotle. Only one was evidently female, as she was an adult. All the others were WAY too small to have been able to tell the gender yet.

Anyone know if you can tell if your new betta from Petco is very young? Mine is very small but not as small as the ones marked "baby". I am just wondering if he is a little guy or will grow. He is very cute but seems a little fragile compared to my other one.

The petco in Fairbanks, Alaska had baby bettas and they were TINY. The one In queensburry, NY has small females that I think are still fry or at least are not adults yet but are labled as adult females. One of the ones i picked up was still transparent. I've had her a month or so and she is finally getting some color in her fins
