My local Petsmart has babies too and increased their betta count to double maybe even triple the amount they usually do. Why? really though?

I guess the bottom line is money. They are a retail pet store that sells fish.
I usually try not to go in the fish section of the giant retailers. I usually get my fish from a couple actual tropical fish stores. They have very healthy, quality fish. I made the mistake yesterday and brought one home.... LOL So, see, it works....
It's like selling parakeets for 15 dollars. makes them seem like they are discardable. People don't realize they are the smallest of parrots, highly intelligent , and are FLOCK birds who should never be sold separately unless they are with you al the time ! JMO

I think they mean post a picture.

Save the picture to either your gallery on here or a photo site like www.photobucket.com then just copy and past the code that starts like this [img]

I got one of the babies about 2 weeks ago. It was so tiny, I just couldn't leave her to rot at petco. Well, I suppose I could of, but I didn't. Her name is Heartstrings and her she is in a 1 gallon tank. Sometimes I have to look real hard to find her in it, if she is behind the cave or plant. She can eat the tiny pellets and my main concern was that she was too small for them.

Mine IS so small I can't even begin to sex him let alone attempt a type. He is eating and is in a containment tank in the bigger tank for heat. He has eaten and may become blue. His little fins are all tore up. Named him aolac. Means "almost"

I just picked one up earlier today. It was inevitable that I get one, since I now work at a Petco. However, underneath the row of betta cups is a shelf of containers meant to be used as their housing... Can't fit much more than a pint of water in those stupid things. I guess the idea is that people will buy a tiny container for the baby and then upgrade as it grows, but really, what are the odds that people will do that?

In any case, mine is super cute. I set it up in a nice little 2.5gal in the living room, and it's been swimming around ever since. It waves its caudal fin at me every time I go to say hi.

Good for you Pumpkin !!! Looking forward to photo's.
what heater are you using in the 2.5 gallon ?
I sued to be a trainer there (dogs ) when it was run by a big training firm... I applaud your thoughtfulness.
